In her new apartment building, Aspen encounters the hopeless, grief-ridden Julius Esprit, who has been struggling to reconcile his faith with the recent loss of both of his parents. After Aspen talks him down from a ledge, Julius becomes convinced that Aspen is his guardian angel.

Soon, the growing pain from her broken family life begins to get in the way of her efforts to keep Julius hopeful. Does she abandon Julius and risk his life, or does she continue her commitment to him as her own well-being deteriorates to a dangerous level?
