There are the visible flaws and the not-so-visible flaws, but everyone has them -- or thinks they do.
In the case of Caley Burrell, her flaws are very visible. Being sent face-first through the windshield of a car has left her irreparably, shockingly damaged. And after a number unsuccessful surgical procedures, she has said, No more. As a result of the accident, her life is as shattered as her face and she now wants either a beginning or an end.
To all outward appearances Martin Maddox has it all: a wife and twin sons he adores, and great success as a painter. But Martin is a drunk, and his wife Marian has had enough. She's leaving Martin, taking the boys back to England. And he can't seem to bring himself to do the one thing that would stop this happening: give up drinking.
Caley sets off on the highway in her big rattletrap car. And Martin flies to England in pursuit of his family, vowing to re-establish control of his life. But it is not to be.
Two people traveling somewhat aimlessly on paths that are destined to converge. And when they arrive at the intersection, their faith and trust is to be put to one last test. They must each decide how much flaws, visible or invisible, actually matter to human interaction.
