Cecilia Wagner is about to discover just how much her future is intertwined with the past. Challenged by an assignment, she digs into the life of her great-grandmother, a midwife during the 1920’s. Her life mirrors the past, as she takes on the battle of her great-grandmother, and discovers her true purpose.
