Unlike the average adolescent, Ameline desires to spend time with her parents, tormented yet brilliant police officer Lucias Goodman and award-winning journalist Margaret Goodman. Unbeknownst to her, the weekend that her older brother, 15-year-old Grayson, gets to hang out with their mother will be a life-changing moment for them all.
