But as Milla's first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy, and traditional morals go out the window. Milla soon shows everyone in her orbit how to live like you have nothing to lose, and what might have been a disaster for the Finlay family loads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life.
