A family deals with the loss of a loved one in the aftermath of 9-11.
After her brother is killed during the events on 9/11, Kim Thomas (Ruby Handler) wants a safer environment to raise her eleven-year-old son Clay (Dylan Patton). Her New York Firefighter husband, Jim (Judge Reinhold) has been distant since that fateful day, and the rift between them grew to irreparable. Separating from Jim and New York, Kim and Clay move to her dad's (Ed Asner) rural Midwestern home.
Things only get worse as Clay rebels and Kim's long-repressed issues surface. Clay has problems with some kids at school, and Kim gives him a dog to hopefully help ease the transition. Clay befriends a local girl (Sierra Peters) and an Arab boy (Kumars Salehi), but not before his rebellious attitude creates problems.
