Zita's passion for helping those less fortunate and her selfless devotion to the girls her mother fosters brings David's life sharply into perspective.
Zita soon realizes that David is so much more than a rich boy. She begins to trust him with her foster sisters' stories, and her own hopes and dreams. But when David's father announces he's running for governor and the focus of his campaign is the 'refugee problem', Zita has grave concerns for her sisters' safety. Then David's betrayal exposes secrets, and it becomes a race against time to save lives.
Can David convince Zita to trust him again, or will his mistake put the life of the woman he loves in jeopardy?
