Ginny, her husband Mark, and their infant son Chris, attended a Christmas party two days before Christmas. Ginny did not realize how much her husband Mark had to drink, and later that night as Mark was driving, they got into a tragic accident that killed Mark and their son Chris.
When Ginny´s family died in the car accident, Ginny had lost the two most loved, and important people in her life. So, she left everything that reminded her of her family, and moved to a dull apartment in New York City. In addition, Ginny found a new job with a human rights organization that helps families in unsafe places such as Afghanistan.
Ginny finished her job early in the war zone, and she then went back to New York City. She then meets a homeless boy named Blue while she was walking on the street. She let Blue stay at her home for a little because she did not want to spend Christmas alone. If Ginny did not met Blue, the plot would of never moved forward.
When Blue´s mother died, he had lost it. It was if he died himself. Then his father went to jail and later died there. So, Blue had noon until his Aunt took him in. But sooner or later, Blue had some altercations with his Aunt´s boyfriend and later left their home and went on the streets.
When Blue left his Aunt´s apartment, he found a utility shed where he stayed while on the streets. He would rarely leave that shed because he believed that some other homeless person would take that from him. Thankfully, Ginny finds him because she heard a loud slam and a flash of color enter the shed. She later finds Blue, a young teen staying in there in the cold and offers him a place to stay for a little at her apartment and some dinner.
Finally, Blue has been staying at Ginny's apartment sleeping on her couch, keeping each other company. If Blue´s parents never died, the plot would be unable to move forward because Blue would never have been on the streets in the first place where Ginny met him.
