Isabel Gary finally has it all: a rising career as a TV producer, a warm relationship with Marshall, the man who wants to marry her, and a tenuous rapport with her rebellious teenage daughter, Denny. But in the blink of an eye, everything changes.
When Denny runs away, Isabel's world falls apart. Marshall is incapable of understanding her anguish over her daughter's disappearance, and just when she needs him most he, too, runs away.
Alone, Isabel must deal with the mounting pressures of a competitively cutthroat job, her anxiety over Denny's whereabouts, and the entrance into her life of Brian, whose motives may or may not be honorable.
