Abstract Wavy Object

Emma and Jared click the instant they meet, but both come with baggage that weights them

down and makes contemplating a new romantic attachment difficult.


For Emma, facing life with a disability caused by her ex-boyfriend Daniel, has taught her how easily danger can occur. While Jared still harbours anger at his ex-fiancée for using him and ruining his dreams.


Emma and Jared find it hard not to recall old wounds and whispered fears, real or imagined, but for their relationship to survive they must both learn to trust each other, and believe in the love growing between them.
