Melody believed that her mother died in a car crash. Then her best friend sends her a magazine clipping with a picture of a woman who looks remarkably like Mom. Afraid that her mother has faked her death or has amnesia, Melody leaves her new home in Cape Cod to search for her mother in California. As she searches, Melody fears that her mother may not remember her, or worse, that she may not want to remember her.
