A single mother, Dee-Dee (Alicia Silverstone), returns to her hometown after a lengthy absence, posing a potential threat to the marriage of her old high school flame and his wife.

She is dying of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and is searching for someone to take care of her son Trooper (Matthew Knight) after she is gone. She makes candles for a living because she says they symbolize light in the dark.

The town rallies around her as she is wasting away and brings back memories of living there when she was growing up. Sam (Eion Bailey), her old flame turned veterinarian, and his wife Lydia (Annabeth Gish), also a vet, agree to take care of Trooper after they fall in love with him while he is helping them at the vet clinic.
