After a devastating car crash leaves her husband on life support, one woman must find strength in her faith as she faces the prospect of his passing. Recalling their courtship through flashbacks, she relives the early days of their relationship and how they fell in love. Their journey wasn’t easy as she faced resistance from her obstinate father (Corbin Bernsen), who made it clear he didn’t want his daughter dating anyone from the military.
