Rising from ashes is hard. Giving up the one you love is harder.
Big-hearted Phoenix Walker, CEO of his own ad agency, is about to give up bachelorhood for Orchid Paige. Hopefully, he won't get tripped up by the perfectionism that drives him to impossibly high standards.
Orchid, the half-Asian beauty who has achieved success despite losses in her early life, is about to risk her heart for Phoenix. She’s even divulged the secret past that makes her panic over images of trauma.
One July morning in Manhattan, Phoenix accompanies Orchid to the airport. Neither believes today is goodbye.
But soon after Orchid leaves, disaster strikes. Phoenix wakes in the hospital, broken, forever changed.
Now, he’s faced with the hardest decision of his life. Does he burden the woman whose traumatic childhood makes him feel protective of her? Or does true love mean having to say Goodbye, Orchid?
