Best-selling novelist Mike Noonan (Pierce Brosnan) cannot stop grieving after his wife Jo's (Annabeth Gish) and their unborn child's sudden death. Writer's block and nightmares force him to return to the couple's former summer home beside a lake in western Maine. While there, he becomes friends with young widow, Mattie (Melissa George), and her daughter, Kyra (Caitlin Carmichael).
