Synopsis

Joyce Hollingsworth (Sonja Smits) is an ambitious businesswoman who will do whatever it takes to protect her cosmetic company’s reputation. So, when she discovers her teenage daughter, Katherine (Alex Paxton-Beesley), is pregnant by her boyfriend, Chuck (Gabriel Venneri), Joyce forbids Katherine from telling Chuck about the pregnancy. Joyce ultimately tells Katherine her baby died during delivery even though she secretly instructs the attending doctor to place the baby girl up for adoption. Twenty years later, Katherine is happily married to Chuck, but their ideal life is turned upside down as they desperately search for a bone marrow donor who can save their gravely-ill young daughter, Haley (Zoe Sarantakis). Unwilling to see her grandchild suffer, Joyce tracks down Katherine’s firstborn child, who has been adopted and named Libby (Madelyn Keys). Libby accepts Joyce’s lucrative offer to be Haley’s bone marrow donor on the condition of anonymity, not realizing Joyce is her biological grandmother and Haley is her biological sister. As Libby and Haley prepare for surgery, Joyce works overtime to ensure no one reveals Libby’s identity to Katherine. But when Joyce’s lie spirals out of control, Katherine puts the pieces together and must confront her mother if she hopes to save her daughters.
