After the birth and adoption of her baby, Ellen struggles to survive the trauma. She spends her last year in high school suffering from severe depression. After graduation, Ellen enrolls in college to satisfy her parents’ wishes, where her roommate, a girl passionate about women’s rights, takes Ellen under her wing.
Ellen finds true love in Jonathan Friedman, who falls in love with Ellen the first time he sees her. John does everything in his power to discover Ellen’s secret and win her love. But, will Ellen’s worst fears be realized when her secret is exposed? Will she ever be reunited with her child?
