Stella lives a quiet life on the Welsh coast with her aunt Oona. Diagnosed in need of a major life change by a friend and funded by an unexpected windfall, she flies to America in search of her dreams. On the aeroplane, she meets an elderly lady in need of companionship and their friendship opens up a whole new chapter in Stella's life. Until, that is, she gets an unexpected call from home - one that shakes her to the very core.
