Melanie Smooter seems to have the world at the tip of her fingers; she has everything she ever dreamt of. A great career in fashion design in New York, a JFK like fiancé from the city. When he proposes to her, her past makes an abrupt appearance.

A past she thought left behind to never revisit, especially her ex-abusive husband that she left years back, with her memories in the south. The problem is that her ex refuses to sign her divorce papers. Which prompts her to go to Alabama, to try and deal with the issues. Once home and among family, weird and unexpected feelings emerge, driving her to rethink what she thought was the perfect life.
