Summary
Emily Wang is a woman whose past is riddled with drugs and regrets. As a result, her husband, Lee, is found dead in a desolate motel room in Hamilton, Ontario, and landed Emily with a six-month jail sentence. The only thing that she desires for the future is a loving relationship with her son Jay, who is being cared for by Lee's parents, Albrecht and Rosemary. While Rosemary blames Emily for Lee's death, Albrecht recognizes the importance of the bond between a mother and her son, and tells Emily that the only way she can have a relationship with Jay is to become clean. Emily battles for a place in a world reluctant to forget the woman she was and unwilling to accept her as the woman she longs to be
