THE STORY:

Is our greatest legacy what we build?  Or what we have chosen to destroy? … Dawn and Adam are trying to grieve their father in peace, but peace is hard to come by when your father was music icon Rick Hayes and millions of fans grieve alongside you. Further complicating their dilemma, the Hayes children receive a surprise visit from his first wife and former bandmate, Connie, who has come in search of closure… and cash. The one-time-rock-goddess-turned-recluse claims to have a shocking story about their famous father they simply won’t believe. Or will they? Now all those left behind must face the real cost of Rick Hayes’ creativity and the consequences of protecting it.
