Ann, Amelia, and Jackie arrive at Grace Summit Bible College with their own particular heartbreaks. Ann is lonely and hungry for belonging, Amelia is broken from abuse and separation from her child, and Jackie is searching for friendships to sustain her.
Ann and Amelia find the connection they seek in one another, but they must navigate the college's religious mandates and eventually, the passage of decades. It is during those passing years that Jackie comes to understand the influence Amelia's and Ann's love story has had on her own life.
