Heather Hershey had always dreamed of being a professional pianist. It had been her life-long ambition to play as part of an orchestra, or as an individual, entertaining thousands.
But an incident when she was at college changed everything and robbed her of the confidence to realize her aspiration. Now, years later and a stay-at-home mom, she can barely look at a piano without it bringing back painful and cringeworthy memories.
But when she runs into an old college friend in the grocery store one day, the meeting sparks something deep within her and she suddenly finds a new determination.
With help and support from her husband Steve, her unconventional neighbor and even her out-of-control kids, Danny and Angela, Heather makes the momentous decision to start her own business.
But juggling a family life, which drives her to distraction, with a new venture with no guarantee of success proves to be more of a challenge that Heather imagined.
Will she finally realize her dream of becoming a professional pianist? Or has she missed her calling and just clutching at straws?
One thing is for sure. Heather Hershey’s life will never be the same again!
