David can hardly handle the death of his wife Jessica. As a much sought-after speaker, he is used to offering comfort to people, but now he has no answers and closes himself up in his grief.
Then he is invited by an old friend for a weekend with a number of childhood friends, with whom he has had no contact for years. David really does not want to go until he hears that a last present from Jessica is waiting for him. What follows is a reunion in which the former friends find their past connection. David discovers that he is not the only one who struggles with 'ghosts' from the past and together they look for a way to brighten the future.
