Jenny's a painter in a family full of sports lovers. She can't catch a ball to save her life. Is it any wonder she feels like an outsider in her own family?

While she has always known that she's the product of a sperm donor, it never really made much difference until she reads an article about tracking down relations. Now she can't let go of the idea.

Finally, Jenny believes she's found the part of her that's been missing for years.

Emily Franklin's written another notable drama full of high angst where the main character struggles to find her identity.
