After her father's death, Hallie Corson returns from her New York photographer's life to her south Jersey hometown to care for her long-estranged brother during his final year of high school. As they learn their family's history, Josh and Hallie will invite disaster into their lives, and will learn, together, to navigate its currents, keeping further losses at bay.
