At 30, Katy Silver is grieving the loss of her mother, Carol, who was her closest friend and confidante. Feeling lost, she decides to take the trip that she and her mother had planned to Positano, Italy, a trip that was supposed to introduce Katy to some of the wonders that Carol had experienced traveling in Italy in her youth. When Katy arrives in Italy, however, she’s astonished to run into none other than a 30-year-old Carol. She doesn’t recognize Katy as her daughter but treats her as a new friend and, in the process, Katy learns more about not just who her mother was but who she is, too.
