Four college friends, really more like sisters than just friends, have their whole lives ready and waiting before them. Now 25 years later, they have not spoken in all that time and are almost worse than strangers. Afraid to share the truths of their real lives, three of them embark on a hiking adventure to honor the memory of the fourth as well as for many other reasons, some unknown even to themselves.

What ensues is worse that anything they might have imagined and yet these earthly battles are nothing compared to the ones waging in their hearts and minds.
