Golden-Globe-winning actress Rachel Griffiths (SIX FEET UNDER) plays Nicole, a counselor who has opened her home to a troubled teen named Angel (Jonan Everett). Nicole and Angel's lives are in flux. Nicole has just learned she's pregnant, and she's not sure where she stands in her relationship with her husband. Meanwhile, Angel's father has recently kicked him out of their New York City apartment for his bad behavior. When reconciliation with his father seems impossible, Nicole has to consider how long the arrangement can last. This thought-provoking drama from director Jim McKay raises the question of how people can affect their destiny through their actions.
