When Jack Armstrong is told he has a terminal illness and
that he has weeks to live, his first concern is for his
beloved wife, Lizzie, and children, baby Jack, Cory and
rebellious teenager Mikki. On Christmas Eve, when Lizzie
comes home, Jack is devastated to see his neighbor, Bill
Miller, kiss Lizzie on their driveway. Jack confronts her,
she tries to explain he's got it all wrong, and
distraught, she leaves the house into an ice storm - and a
fatal collision with a truck. Overwhelmed with grief, and
with his illness worsening Jack is taken into a hospice.
The children move to the West Coast to live with various
members of the family.
But then a miracle happens. Jack begins to recover, and
day by day he starts to heal. Confounding the doctors,
Jack leaves the hospital without any evidence of the
illness. Unexpectedly the family inherits a beautiful old
villa with a lighthouse on the beach in South Carolina. It
was the house where Lizzie grew up and Jack feels an
inexplicable closeness to her while he's there. Although
his mother-in-law, Bonnie, has other ideas for their
future, Jack knows that this is the chance he has to re-
build his relationship with his kids. And as he struggles
to reconnect with the children, he also has the chance to
find love again, perhaps even with Lizzie's help.
