Synopsis:

 It’s a dilemma old as time; how do you mend a broken heart? Safely tucked in her home, Jesse Collins uses her quick wit as a shield to keep the world at arm’s length. Over two years after the death of Jesse’s wife, Donna, Calvin, her best friend, steps up to meddle as only a best friend would, trying to help her to start living again.  Through a parks and rec poetry program, Jesse meets Hannah, a housewife who was looking for a hobby.  The two find more than they expected, but could she possibly be the one to inspire Jesse to move on?  In this feature, friendships are tested and tried, and lives and loves are rewritten with unexpected endings.
