As if turning sixteen isn’t hard enough, Jacey Jeffries (Danielle Pannabaker, Empire Falls) has moved to a new town with her family, which means a new school for Jacey and her younger sister Macy (Clare Stone, Vinegar Hill). It’s Jacey’s recently divorced mother Terry (Oscar and Golden Globe winner Mercedes Ruehl,, The Fisher King) who wants a new beginning for herself, her daughters, and the son she’s had late in life, three-month-old Charley. While Terry faces the pressures of motherhood again, Jacey adapts to the pressures of school. An honor student and a promising athlete – Jacey, also a loner, finds her only confidante in guidance counselor Donna Cooper (Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Jane Krakowski, Ally McBeal) and her husband Bob (Colin Ferguson, Coupling)—a childless couple hoping against hope for a family of their own. Struggling to understand the reasons behind her favorite student’s inner turmoil, Donna soon makes a startling discovery...
