After the sudden death of his parents, Jules Moreau is enrolled in boarding school where he and siblings Marty and Liz are forced to live apart. Once vivacious and fearless, Jules retreats inward and lives within his memories - until he meets Alva, a kindred soul caught in her own grief. Fifteen years later, the siblings remain strangers bound by tragedy and struggling to recover the family they once were. Jules is anchored only by his desires to be a writer and to reunite with Alva, who turned her back on their friendship on the verge of it becoming more. And just as it seems they may make up for time wasted, invisible forces - whether fate or chance - intervene.
