There she runs into her ex-fiance and love of her life, Sean Templeton.

    They both fear that Jimmy is in town to get his revenge on her for putting him in prison for beating his wife...her sister. Her best friend, Alan, shows up from Los Angeles and it seems that he's jealous, causing Sean to get suspicious. While in town, she deals with her family issues and finds out that her father's accident, was not an accident after all.
    When Jimmy turns up dead and crammed into a dumpster, they find out that her best friend Alan is actually his brother. Convinced it is over, Sean and Kim rekindle their love and begin to hope for a future.
