for a powerhouse law firm in New York. Her workaholic lifestyle leaves little room for getting back to visit family
and friends in her home state of Kentucky. Amy is called to assist her firm on
a tough case, which leads to an elderly woman being evicted from her home. Amy
questions her career path and who she truly represents. She takes some
much-needed vacation time, traveling home to Louisville. Her father is a
renowned attorney, and her mother is a blueblood socialite. Amy arrives home to
discover her family home has become a literal circus, with people and animals
running around. Her father attempts to fight for noble causes in and outside
the courthouse, lighting a spark inside Amy.

New York City is where Amy made her career, but Louisville has an indelible hold on her heart.
