When Willow returns home, she wonders why there is a police car in her driveway. She finds out that her parents were killed in an accident on their way to an appointment for her mom to get a tumor removed immediately.
Willow meets with her counselor Dell, but when she arrives, two other kids, Mia & Quang-ha, were talking to Dell. Dell introduces Willow to Mia and they become friends.
Mia & Quang-ha take Willow to their mom, Pattie's, nail salon where she works. The kids introduce and explain Willows' situation.
Since Willow doesn't want to return home because it will remind her of her parents, she stays with Mia, Quang-ha and Pattie. They live in a garage behind their nail salon.
Pattie and the kids work hard to clean Dell's messy apartment so the social worker thinks Willow has been living there the whole time. Dell goes and rooms with a man down the hall. This is also where Willow gets help planting a garden outside the apartment which she is very passionate about.
Willow says her goodbyes to everyone then heads to court so Lenore could adopt her. Judge Biederman tells Willow that Jairo Hernandez and Pattie Nguyen were seeking a custody agreement. Willows' friends and counselor come to support her. In the end, everyone is excited and happy Willow has a family.
