In a family of successes, she's the embarrassment, still defiantly refusing to color inside the lines. Perhaps being a server at a trendy Atlanta restaurant isn't a dream career, but it's her work. She has friends, she has neighbors, she has causes. But Ellie has never fit in. When her artist mother's fight with cancer takes a bad turn, Ellie is forced to reenter her family's perfect world to help care for her. As the two women struggle to reconnect, Ellie begins to understand that her family might not be as unblemished as it seems. As her mother's condition worsens, Ellie embarks on a journey toward forgiveness, hope, and healing. Is there a place of peace for her? And like her mother, must she travel halfway around the world to find it?
