Months pass since the horrible accident that's created a rift between Ellie and the man she loves. While she wishes to end the everlasting heartache, dreams of wishes come true keep her from taking distance to a whole new level. Faced with constant hurt in her every day life, the only peace she can find is when she sleeps. Closed ears, hearts, and minds make for bare progress in moving on, but Ellie realizes that forgiveness is not simply one-sided - a truth that's keeping her guilt anchored to her like shackles.
