But when her father's new prim & proper family find out Apple is pregnant, she is pressured to conform to their expectations and runs away again. Apple must rely on her own survival skills on the streets, until she meets the kindly Father McCarthy who helps direct her to a shelter for pregnant teens. Apple's unbreakable spirit enables her to fight against the odds to find redemption, and ultimately create a family to finally call her own.
