Cole Hatfield is a lonely Army veteran that is readjusting to civilian life in a small Texas town after having been medically evacuated from Afghanistan. Acclimation to his old lifestyle is taking him longer than he thought it would. There was not anyone waiting on him when he got home and most of his friends have moved on with their lives. Cole only has his faithful German shepherd, Rocco, to spend his days with.
One night Rocco hears something outside and wakes Cole from his sleep. It is not a burglar or prowler, it is a young woman in desperate need of help. She has fled her abusive boyfriend and is on the run. The protector in Cole springs to life and he takes her into his house.
Though they came together under unfortunate circumstances they have a strong belief that everything happens for a reason and both are looking forward to what the future holds for them.
