Synopsis

Attorney Elliot Anderson is widowed after the car-crash death of his wife. Elliot has raised his biracial granddaughter, Eloise, since his daughter died in childbirth. As he struggles with his grief, Elliot's world is turned upside-down when the child's African-American grandmother, Rowena, demands that Eloise be brought under the care of her father, Reggie, a drug addict who Elliot blames for the negligence that led to the death of his own daughter. Elliot finds himself deeply entrenched in a custody battle and will stop at nothing to keep his granddaughter from coming under the watch of his reckless son-in-law.
