The illness and death of, Beth, a small child, brings the lives of her nurse, Alice, and the girl's artist friend, Clifford, together. After Beth moves to her next life, Alice cannot continue her special care and art therapy. A new wing of the children's unit hinges on Clifford's sculptures and Alice's love for kids. Taken with Alice's pureness and her work with the children, Clifford employs the help of his father and brother, who work for a cruise company, to take Alice on an intimate voyage from Vancouver to Alaska to rekindle her broken heart. Activities designed to encourage Alice draw them together. But when Alice learns of Clifford's own unique health challenge, she isn't sure what to do next. Set in the midst of art, the rain, the uncertainties of life, death, their personal journeys, and ultimately love.
