After the death of their son, Howie (Jeff A. Smith) and Becca (RaeAnne Carlson)
have a difficult time communicating.
Because they have a shared experience, Becca and her mother, Nat (Nikki Swoboda)
are able to find better ways to communicate.
Despite his best efforts to share his feelings—or perhaps because of them—Jason (Joseph B. Crook, left),
the young man who accidentally killed their son, is unable to share their grief. Looking on from a
distance is Becca's sister, Izzy (JoNae Villeneuve).
Jason usually feels alone when he tries to reach out.
The inability to share grief leads to anger and alienation.
Despite the pain, family is the best source of consolation.
