Is Hope destined to be a single mother, whose daughter will fall victim to the agony and chaos of living with alcoholism in the family? Will history repeat itself yet again, with another generation of Victor's family surrendering to the almighty bottle? Or will Hope stand by long enough for Victor to figure out the true meaning of life and remember the happiness they once shared? Can fairy tales come true, or is that only for the movies? Come along for a bumpy ride, and feel the raw, real, and heart-wrenching emotions that Hope battles with everyday.
