50-year-old Louise Wimmer is adrift. Her comfortable life is turned upside down when a painful separation and an unexpected crisis leave her immersed in debt and homeless, forcing her to sleep in her car.

Refusing even the help of friends and a man who truly loves her, she will nevertheless find the strength to build a new life for herself.
