Martha (Owen), a mother of four rambunctious and imaginative children, finds solace upon meeting Claudia (Ayala), a younger woman trying to figure out her purpose in life. The two quickly become friends and Martha invites Claudia to come live with her family. When Martha’s health declines, the bond Claudia has with each member of the family is forced to be tested, giving opportunity for true, strong relationships to be created.
