For son Sheldon (Jesse Camacho), the confusing currents of loss drive him away from the bedrock of his friends Miriam (Brooke Palsson) and Danny (Tyler Johnston) into the clutches of his high school wrestling team. Anne (Wendel Meldrum) struggles with her new life as a widow and the future of the imperilled family driving school.
