Have you gone through any dark places in your lifetime? Times when you think the pain, suffering or depression will never stop. Do you question if its worth it? Do the benefits outweigh the consequences? Life's problems are no different for the people in this small community off the western shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. Friends and neighbors celebrate the good times together and support each other through the bad times. How bad does it get? Well, one shoots their spouse and goes to jail. A serial killer comes to their community taking lives in a very gruesome matter. Car accidents take peoples' memories as well as their lives. Just to name a few. These things could destroy them, but they don't because they all ban together. With help from God, family and each other, as well as courage and determination, they each move from their dark place into the light again. It isn't all bad, there is love, lifelong friendships, engagements, marriage, and even a baby or two.
