Kristen Bradley loves the theater, but has been so busy with nursing school and a troubled relationship, that she hasn't had time to step foot on stage. So when the opportunity arises to join a local theater company, she jumps at the chance. There, she finds happiness, and is quickly drawn in deeper to the tight- knit group than she ever imagined. You see, Riverbend Community Theater is like a family, only its ties are stronger than blood. They're so strong in fact, it's almost cult-like, given that the entire company bows down to one very powerful director. His name is Richard, and people worship the ground he walks on. He's charismatic, talented, charming, and larger-than-life. Soon he takes young Kristen under his wing; offering friendship, fatherly advice, and a shoulder to cry on. Something about him fills the empty hole created within her when her father left so long ago, and now she can't imagine life without her new "family". Just when things couldn't get any better, Kristen discovers a dark side to Richard. Not only does he control his actors onstage, but off as well, and it doesn't take long before his fatherly-affection gives way to late night phone calls and seductive emails. Now Kristen's perfect world is shattered, and she's forced to question everything she thought she knew about this company and its director. She wants to tell Richard no, but she's also keenly aware that bruising his ego is the worst mistake any of his actors can make if they hope to stay around. Should she give in to him and maintain her place with Riverbend, or walk away and lose everything she loves? Ties That Bind is the story of a vulnerable young woman who quickly learns that things aren't always what they seem, and sometimes, the seductive world of acting and the allure of the stage prove more powerful than one girl can fight against.
