The story follows Colby, a farmer from North Carolina, who takes a musical gig in St. Pete Beach Florida. He meets Morgan Lee and his world is turned upside down. Meanwhile Beverly, who is fleeing an abusive relationship, is trying to create a new life for her and her six-year-old son in a small town off the beaten path. Anxiety and fear get the best of her, causing everything she knows to be questioned when she makes a desperate decision. Eventually fate draws Colby, Morgan and Beverly together in a web that forces each to wonder if a better future can survive the heavy-weighted past.
