After some very traumatic events in their lives, Montana University art professor and environmental activist Trout Brooke is happy to spend some recovery time with her mother Mary Beth during the December holiday break. Joining them is Tommy Sharpe, a twelve year-old girl who was kidnapped and molested, and who desperately needed some vacation recovery time.
