"We'll be alright." That is the lie that new mother Melanie Walker has convinced herself and has been trying to convince those around her. Diagnosed as a terminal cancer victim just a little while after giving birth to her son, Melanie is struggling to catch up with her troubled marriage that is falling apart from under her, her new born son and her illness that she knows in the end will all end the same. She'd been able to lie to herself about being alright, even when her world around her comes crashing down and she has nothing left, but how long will it take for her to come back to the harsh reality that awaits her? And to just what extent would she go to stay in her world where she'll be alright?
