Markie, a fortysomething divorcée who has suffered a
humiliating and very public fall from marital, financial,
and professional grace, moves, along with her teenage
son, Jesse, to a new town, hoping to lick her wounds in
private. But Markie and Jesse are unable to escape the
attention of their new neighbor Mrs. Saint, an irascible,
elderly New European woman who takes it upon herself,
along with her ragtag group of “defectives,” to identify
and fix the flaws in those around her, whether they want
her to or not.
What Markie doesn’t realize is that Mrs. Saint has big
plans for the divorcée’s broken spirit. Soon, the quirky
yet endearing woman recruits Markie to join her eccentric
community, a world where both hidden truths and hope
unite them. But when Mrs. Saint’s own secrets threaten to
unravel their fragile web of healing, it’s up to Markie
to mend these wounds and usher in a new era for the
“defectives”—one full of second chances and happiness.
