Maggie deals with her ongoing grief following the death of her WWII pilot husband and embarks on a cross-country trip to free herself emotionally and begin a new life with an incredibly challenging job. On the way, she returns to his hometown to visit his grave, re-establish her relationship with his family, and introduce her young daughter to them. Her final destination is fraught with life-changing decisions as she tackles her new job and unexpectantly embarks on a new relationship with a man with the aid of a storied character from her late husband’s past.
