Maries (Kaczmarek) 17-year-old Elizabeth (Rebecca Williams) has the picture perfect life, with a seemingly equally wonderful boyfriend. Meanwhile, Le Ann (Dickens) is raising 16-year-old Kelli (Carleigh Beverly) as a single parent and finds it difficult to relate to the pressures her daughter is facing with boys, friends and school. When Kelli starts to suspect Elizabeth may be abused by her boyfriend (Nick Thurston), no one will believe her. Marie and Le Ann have always leaned on one another through lifes challenges, but discover they need each other more than ever as they navigate the complexities of understanding and raising their daughters.
