Things go sideways when she is evicted from her apartment and her boss sends her to walk a new client's dog. There she meets Steven, an older man who is also bent over. Confronted with a mirror image of her disability Kristen is horrified but Steven sees an opportunity. Together they set out on a journey that will change them forever.
