Set to start over, Kora and Tony are on their way to a new life in Salt Lake City until their car breaks down. Then Tony, without explanation, abandons Kora in the struggling mining town of Helper, Utah. Alone, broken, and angry, especially that her family was right in their judgments against Tony, Kora decides to stay in Helper and aid in an art-centered transformation. But in working to save her new home, Kora learns that first love only happens once. A second chance at love requires much more than just an eager heart.
