Will is struggling to move on after his beloved daughter dies. Stuck in a dark cloud of grief, he spends his time hiding in his house and drinking himself into a stupor. Will just wants to be left alone. Meanwhile, a young girl from the neighborhood, Gracie, is determined to sell the last of her Firefly Girl cookies. She knows Will is hiding and that he has a reputation. Gracie also knows he's the only person left in town who hasn't bought any cookies. So fearless Gracie breaks into his house. Will is caught off-guard and taken aback by this unexpected and unwanted visitor. No matter how hard he tries to get her to leave, Gracie isn't backing down. Unbeknownst to Will, Gracie is suffering through issues not that different from his own.
