Markie, a forty something divorcee who has suffered a humiliating and very public fall from marital, financial and professional grace, moves with her teenage son to a new town, hoping to lick her wounds in private. But they are unable to escape the attention of their new neighbour Mrs. Saint, an irascible, elderly european woman who takes it upon herself, along with her ragtag group of "defectives," to identify and fix the flaws in those around her, whether they want her to or not. What Markie doesn't realize is that Mrs. Saint has big plans for the divorcee's broken spirit. Soon, she recruits Markie to join her eccentric community, a world where both hidden truths and hope unite them. But when Mrs. Saint's own secrets threaten to unravel their fragile web of healing, it's up to Markie to mend these wounds and usher in a new era for the "defectives" - one full of second chances and happiness.
