Sam and Rosie Keep have always wanted children, but adoption has become their only option; they'll do anything to have a child to love.
Seven-year-old Jonah is far away from home, and the man who's meant to be taking care of him has disappeared.
When Sam and Rosie meet Jonah they know they've found the child they've dreamed of. But when the unthinkable happens and life changes for all three members of the Keep family, suddenly Sam and Rosie must answer an impossible question: how far are they willing to go for a child who isn't really theirs?
