Two women struggle to come to grips with the past that haunts them both. Anna adored her aunt Rose until Rose betrayed Anna and her terminally ill mother. Anna can neither forgive nor forget. Years later, her own heart broken, Anna returns home to Rose, and to the family restaurant, the Bella Sorella, now grown shabby with age.
Still reluctant to forgive, Anna insists her stay is temporary. But the intimacy of working with Rose to put the Bella Sorella back on its feet, and an unexpected chance at true, love, bring about a change of heart.
