Leigh and her family serve as her guardians and slowly introduce her to the 21st century.
When John, a young, mysterious man arrives from rural Pennsylvania, Leigh and her brother Stan try to balance their duty to Harriet and the past with the actions of the peculiar gentleman. As they realize there is more to their grandfather’s research, they work to uncover the secrets their family is keeping from them.
