World renown author and grief guru, Nick finds his hermit lifestyle is disrupted when Kat, a mysterious neighbor, visits one day, bearing gifts of goodwill. Reluctantly he lets this strange, broken girl into his pitiful life. For the first time in years he emerges from his self-imposed shell, to find that there are millions of people just like Kat, who have relied on the words from his best selling book -- Adrift in the Abyss -- to heal the deepest of wounds caused by grief. The irony is not lost on Nick, in that he has never been able to recover from his own anguish. All he wants to do is go back... and change everything. But what if he got that chance? What then?
