Leighton Welch is determined to cleanse her system of all the toxicity in Los Angeles, including her very recent boyfriend. She packs up what she can and moves as far away as possible, to a small town in Maine by the name of Bleaker's Point. A brief encounter with a rude cabin-dweller starts her off on the wrong foot.
Ulysses Sherman lives all by himself in a self-made cabin outside of town, doing odd jobs for the residents and keeping to himself. When Leigh shows up asking for directions, he gets her on her way and out of his life. Or so he thinks.
Leigh, not liking how Ulysses seems to disapprove of her, is tenacious in her pursuit of answers. When she discovers the secret of why he's living in the middle of nowhere, alone and crabby, will it be too much for even her to overcome?
