In an effort to escape the memories of their dead son and save their fragile marriage, Frank and Mary are moving out of their long-time family home tomorrow. Their youngest son, David, has come home from college to help out only to find that things have grown more strange in his absence. Their move is further complicated when Mary provides refuge for Carmen and Esperanza, a mother and daughter who lost their home in a fire last night. Carmen is still looking for her son, Juan, who has gone missing in the fire. After a rough start, the two families bond in their grief and loss until Juan is found. Mary is, again, forced to confront her own loss and, with Frank and David, to find a way to move forward with her life.
