Synopsis

Here is a haunting and beautiful story of a child who is seeking her father's love. With the help of her grandfather, 10-year-old Jenny finds healing and the courage to be herself. Jenny chases after her father, brother and grandfather, hoping to go fishing with them. But her father says he wants to fish with her brother and leaves Jenny hurt and confused beside the ruin of the old river house homestead. Grandpa George stays with Jenny, despite her father's protests, and listens as she tearfully shares feelings of being unloved. Together they explore the old homestead and encounter the ghost of a beautiful young woman, Jenny's great-great-aunt Sondra. Sondra reveals secrets from the family's past and gifts Jenny with part of the lost family treasure. Ultimately, with Sondra's affirmation and Grandpa George's support, Jenny begins to realize her worth and understand a past that echoes still within herself and her difficult relationship with her father.
