This chance moment on the bridge changes the trajectory of Parker’s life when she becomes obsessed with discovering why Alice jumped and who she thinks she killed. While keeping her matriarchal Grandmother and gun for hire therapist from committing her again, Parker finds herself partnered with a grieving dog while she delves into Alice’s world to find answers. She volunteers at the Youth Centre Alice frequented run by the tough as nails former psychiatrist, Barb.
