Jack is running away from the truth about the automobile accident that killed Emma, which also involved his estranged sister Maggie.
Nell is having nightmares because of Emma's death and just wants to meet Stevie so that she can learn more about her mother, keep her memories alive, and maybe even bring her father and Aunt Maggie back together.
Stevie has hidden herself away from the world after having her heart broken to many times. Maggie is blaming herself for her sister-in-laws death.
