Since then, her marriage has crumbled and she has been obsessed with collecting objects with any connection to Sophie. Her divorce, along with her hoarding, has severed most of her relationships in her community.
Sophie was a unique child who was obsessed with birds at a young age and always carried around binoculars. She was also strong-willed and at times her outbursts stressed out her parents. Her friendship with her friend Star brought the two families together, but since the disappearance, Jesse has not been in contact. A chance meeting brings Jesse and Star together and they begin to unravel the secrets of Sophie’s disappearance.
