Hugh Penders has been stuck in neutral for nearly a decade since his brother Chase died in a car accident. He carries with him two secrets that he has never been able to share with anyone: that he believes he might have been able to prevent the accident, and that he was deeply in love with Chase's girlfriend, Iris. When Hugh's father suffers a debilitating heart attack, Hugh must return to the home he's been running away from for the past ten years. One day, he encounters Iris - who has long since moved away - on the street. They begin a friendship and Hugh believes he's falling in love with Iris all over again. But the ghost of Chase haunts both of them. And when each reveals a truth the other never knew, their lives and their vision of Chase will change forever.
