A family man in his eighties, Calvin is alone for the first time in over sixty years. His wife, Emily, recently passed away and he isn't taking her death well. He doesn't remember how to be alone, and he doesn't know if he can forgive himself for the mistakes he made.
Edward, a long time family friend, comes to check on him during this time of need. Edward understands just how dangerous things are for Calvin, and he's hoping to talk him out of doing the unthinkable. He just hopes he isn't too late to help.
Help, however, isn't the easiest thing to give, and it can be even more difficult to accept....
Love, loss, and forgiveness weave inextricably into this tale of friendship and hope.
Nichole is caught in a tough position, juggling too many responsibilities as her world falls apart around her. When her mother turns up missing while performing an errand, Nichole is left picking up the pieces of her shattered life and taking care of her younger siblings. She isn’t sure where she can turn to for help and she is facing a lot of harsh realities about how life works.
Richard wants to help Nichole through this heartbreaking situation, but he discovers that he’s been doing the right things for the wrong reasons for a long time. Everything begins to fall apart as he realizes he's swept problems under the rug for so long he might no longer be able to fix them.
Can they overcome their own prejudices and get a Second Chance?
