Raised from birth by an abusive father, Katie fights to maintain a normal life, despite the adversities at home. When her father dies in a tragic accident, Katie’s stability is rocked and depression becomes her companion. Concerned school advisors refer the obviously distressed teen to the university’s guidance department, where she meets Frank Hardgrove. The handsome blue-eyed, 24-year-old University of Virginia counselor takes Katie under his wing, until a moment of passion puts her therapy into a tailspin.
