Scientist and pharmaceutical CEO Dinah Taylor takes comfort in her orderly life, both professionally and within the walls of her luxury apartment. But the morning she buys breakfast for seven-year-old Jonah Morgan and his dog, 'Mutt,' her life changes in ways she could not have predicted. Breakfasts with Jonah are soon part of Dinah's daily routine, and she finds herself becoming the mysterious boy's main source of refuge. With no children of her own and harrowing memories of childhood, Dinah doubts her ability to help. However, to Jonah, Dinah is like a handpicked guardian angel he'll come to need more desperately than even he anticipates.
