Jay: All right, okay.
Hilary: And she goes off to this school and kind of finds herself, and it’s a big secret from one of her parents. And so she deals with all these kind of, like, emotions, and she overcomes it. And it just talks about, you know, like persevering through something terrible that happened and showing how she gets through it.
