Synopsis

Diane lives alone in western Massachusetts, spending her days caring for others and always putting herself last. Her most precious burden is her grown son, Brian, constantly in-and-out of rehab but not fully honest with himself about his addiction. Solitude opens to new levels of perception and being…past and present collide…people come and go…and Diane is confronted with the possibility of forgiveness.
