Life is normal for the Brooks family until a tragic turn of events forever changes their lives. After the death of their parents, ten-year-old Michael, seventeen-year-old Nancy, and twenty-one-year-old Kevin, are left to fend for themselves, their home, and their sanity as they struggle through the tribulations they now face.

Kevin’s life is turned upside-down and he must give up his dreams of college and career to work in order to secure custody of his siblings.

Nancy, an introverted, hopeful romantic, has a bittersweet attitude towards her brothers and her life. A high school senior with an undecided future and an ambiguous career path, she finds herself even more uncertain when she must step up and become a parentified, surrogate mother.

Michael, the heartbeat of the story and a very talented writer, uses his stories to escape his reality.  He wants nothing more than to be a writer and illustrator and to one day share his stories with the world.

Through his curious and loving spirit, he befriends MC, a quiet, homeless man who begs for change outside a popular, local diner, where Kevin and Nancy begin working to make ends meet.

Through their hardships, the three siblings prevail … and with the help of those around them, they find a happy and unexpected ending to their story.

A smile for humanity will be forever etched in your heart.
