Portia Kane is escaping her ritzy Florida life and her cheating pornographer husband, running back to South Jersey, a place that remains largely unchanged from the years of her unhappy youth. Looking to find the goodness in the world she believes still exists, Portia sets off to save herself by saving someone else-- a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a traumatic incident. With the 'help' of a sassy nun, an ex-heroin addict, a metal-head little boy, and her hoarder mother, will Portia be able to restore a good man's reputation-- and find renewed hope in the human race?
