Elena is waiting for something to help change her course in life. She doesn’t know what it will be, but she knows it will happen. She believes her life has been cursed with all the things that have happened. When her grandmother suggests she helps out a local man by watching his two children while he is working, she thinks this is a horrible idea. But as she gets to know the children and all that they have been through, she has a chance to not only turn her life around, but maybe theirs as well, and become the person she was always meant to be.
