About The Movie:
Upon learning her beloved sister (Christine Chatelain, “Supernatural”) and brother-in-law (Jason Tremblay, “Virgin River”) were killed in an accident, Josie (Chabert), a New York City marketing executive, rushes to her small hometown of New Hope, North Carolina to be with her family, who are each reacting differently to this loss. In the midst of grieving, it is revealed that Josie has been named the guardian of her sister’s children, Delilah (Nugent) and Ben (Gordon), which affects the family dynamic. Her father (Harrison) and mother (Rothery) feel it’s best for everyone if the kids stay with them – after all, Josie has a successful life to return to in New York. Josie wants to honor her sister’s wishes but doesn’t know if she’s ready for the challenges of instant motherhood, especially as they deal with their loss. Josie can’t help but reflect on her past, especially when she runs into her high school ex-boyfriend, Cooper (Hynes), who is also the kids’ basketball coach. As Josie and her family adjust to a new normal, with Cooper’s help, they learn that the best families don’t always get it right, but if they lean on each other, their hearts will learn to laugh and love again.
