In small-town New Hampshire, 8-year-old Ronan O’Leary and his family have made a commitment of radical generosity: opening their home to strangers recovering from opioid addiction. The guests are invited to share meals with the family, and sometimes even bedrooms with the O’Leary kids. Jenn, a newcomer, gives birth while in recovery and tries to rebuild her relationship with her estranged 11-year-old son.


This is the only life Ronan and his three older sisters have ever known. Every year, their mom asks them whether or not they want to continue: “Are you willing to give up a year of your life, so that someone can have the rest of their life?” As the children enter adolescence, both the family and their guests are faced with difficult decisions about community, independence, and the real nature of altruism.
