Reflecting on her own lost love, the now aged Sophie ONeill discovers her expectant granddaughter, Jori, in tears and struggling to make sense of her recent separation. As Jori pleads for answers from Sophie and her ancestors, Sophie guides Jori to the journals written by four generations of ONeill women, stored in a family trunk brought from Ireland. Jori learns about the dance with life her ancestors struggled with, learned from and kept secrets about, while Sophie does her best to come to terms about the choices she made. They sift through memories of heartbreak and joy, ultimately revealing one of Sophies deepest secrets.
