Synopsis

Charley is a bright, eager, awkward, somewhat shy 14-year-old girl, who likes arithmetic and Dancing With the Stars, but more than anything wants to be reunited with--and live with--Cindy, the mother who abandoned her some time ago. But when the two of them meet, it becomes clear that Cindy's problems may be a bit more than Charley's wish can overcome.
