Two very different women form an unexpected bond, but when their friendship sparks a reckless romance their worlds are turned upside-down.

Lauren is at sea after the death of her girlfriend. Finding herself jobless and evicted, she retreats to her childhood home in Oklahoma and her well-meaning but less than accepting mother (splendidly portrayed by Beth Grant). Also returning to the nest is Lauren’s brother Justin, bringing his polished, Californian girlfriend, Carrie, with him. Carrie is a fish out of water, always overdressed and underprepared for the social niceties of this small town. Justin and Carrie are driven and business-minded, and the pair’s romantic and business relationships are inextricably linked as they try to launch a local branch of her family’s Napa winery. When a crucial meeting sends Justin out of town, Lauren’s grief and Carrie’s career and commitment anxieties draw the two women together, challenging them to face their fears and rise from the ashes of their former lives.
