Now, fifteen years later, Dee Dee has returned, mysteriously single with a young son to raise alone. Amid rumors and whispers, she launches a candle-making business, while Sam, now married, feels his life turning upside down. For his old love is more enchanting than ever, even though an unmistakable sadness shadows her high spirits, causing folks to wonder: What secret is she keeping from those who care the most?
