Boston social worker Jennifer Barrett is re-building her life after losing her husband and daughter in a plane crash. She helps young client Mark Powell find work at the senior's residence where her father lives. After learning Mark hasn't seen his father, an internationally-known broadcast journalist, in over four years she can't understand how a father could abandon his only son to chase war stories. When Jennifer meets Ben Powell, she isn't prepared to like him, despite his charm and affable manner. However, when he reveals he's been battling post-traumatic stress disorder, she realizes he didn't want to bring his demons home to Mark, who has battled depression. As Jennifer gets to know Ben, she realizes there is room in her heart for laughter and new love. Lana Fitzpatrick, a close friend of Jennifer's and a nurse who helps care for her father, is a widow. She is raising son Danny alone. As Lana gets to know Mark Powell and sees him bonding with Danny, she finds her heart blossoming with love. As new family bonds form, all discover the power of friendship and love to overcome loss and face life with renewed hope.
