After a series of events out of her control, fifteen year old Julia is misunderstood by her parents and sent to boarding school. Thirty years later, Julia’s son Ryan, an elementary school teacher, is happily married to Kyra, an attorney. Ryan gently pushes Kyra into a pregnancy she isn’t wholly ready to undertake, and they have a beautiful baby girl who in infancy displays a failure to thrive that panics Kyra. A series of medical appointments reveals a life-threatening disease that not only challenges Kyra and Ryan, but ultimately uncovers a world of family secrets and memories that threaten to unravel their marriage and their families.
