Nathan Hurst has had a rough life. He left home at an early age after his brother's death and his father's suicide. Nathan's mom was absent after these tragic events so the thought of leaving seemed to be the only solution.

Never letting go of his past, Nathan spends most of his adult life isolated from the rest of the world. His isolation is enabled by his career, which requires him to travel often each year. Returning home from a business trip, Nathan finds himself stranded at an airport due to a snowstorm. While waiting in line to book another flight, he meets Addison and her two children, Collin and Lizzy. This chance encounter sets in motion a chain of events that will change Nathan's life and permits him to unload the burdens of his past.
