Victoria's life is turned upside down when she faces unemployment and haunted memories. As she is handed termination papers, she realizes that finding her ancestors may be the only way to ever work again.

Nevertheless, she perseveres, and her journey ultimately leads her to receive two apologies that she believes will spark racial healing in the United States of America.
