On the threshold of Bill Bales' marriage proposal, Colleen Hanlan unexpectedly unleashes a torrent of hateful barbs at her soon-to-be fiancé. After months of struggling to hold on to fading memories of a fairy tale romance from her not so distant past, Colleen realizes why she and the one true love of her life, Eddie Vanco, are no longer together. She rages against Bill and those responsible and vows to regain that lost magical time.
A modern-day working young woman, raised by a widowed father, Colleen is surrounded by well-meaning friends and family, but also by those who would use her as an unwilling pawn for their purpose. Apparently set to fall prey to an adversarial spiral of malintentioned designs, Colleen cuts away at the core of preordained realities and, defying nature and logic, empowers herself to be her own woman striving to become the master of her fate.
