Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Nine-year-old Emma is a talented child actress, whose career is managed by her loving but overbearing mother Paige. Paige ferries her daughter across LA from audition to casting to job. But one fateful day, Emma's life is turned upside down when their car crashes, killing her mother instantly and leaving Emma in intensive care with catastrophic brain injuries. As Emma recovers from her life-changing injuries, she is left in the care of her aunt, Whitney. Whitney committed herself to her career as a psychiatrist long ago, deciding she didn't want children. Although she and her sister were close, she disagreed about the way her sister pushed her young daughter into a career.Now Whitney is Paige's sole guardian; parent, friend and confidante. From such devastating loss, aunt and niece must find a way to heal their bodies and their hearts.
