"It's not the distance that separates people, it is silence."
While Emma lies in the hospital after an accident, she can't stop thinking about her last conversation with her mom. Well...her last argument with her mom. Meanwhile, Emma's mom is frantic. True, she was less than pleased with her daughter after their last argument that morning, but her anger turns to pure worry when Emma doesn't return any of her phone calls, nor does she return home. But it is a news broadcast that might be the only thing that will help reunite mother and daughter. Does Emma's mom figure out what happened? Will Emma figure out how to see eye to eye with her mom?
