When Natalie sent her siblings to prison, she never imagined reuniting with them 15 years later to claim a dubious inheritance
Natalie Walker is the reason her brother and sister went to jail over 15 years ago. As a result, she hasn’t spoken to her family since. On the same day she expects to be promoted at her job (until her boyfriend Paul swoops in and takes the position), Natalie receives a letter from a lawyer in Santa Cruz saying her mother has died – and the only way for her children to inherit their family’s large, historical home is for all three, now adults, to come back and claim it.
Natalie drives to Santa Cruz, expecting to sign some documents, see her siblings Lynn and Jake, and get back to her life in Boston. But Jake, now an award-winning scientist, is missing. And Lynn, working as an undertaker in NYC, shows up with her teenaged son. While Natalie and her nephew look for Jake—meeting a very handsome Spanish scientist in the process—Natalie takes stock of her life and the guilt she has held for so many years. Though no one can change the past, every day is an opportunity to change how you want to live in the future.
