Robert is the smart, calculating husband to Emma, who had an affair with Robert’s best friend, Jerry. Betrayal starts in 1977 when Jerry and Emma meet after Emma and Robert’s marriage dissolves, and then backtracks to 1968 when Jerry and Emma’s affair first began. As the years spin backwards, a complex web of secrets about the trio emerges and calls into question the nature of their intimacy - as friends, partners, and spouses.

"Well, to be brutally honest, we wouldn't actually want a woman around, would we, Jerry?" - Robert
