"Are you here to criticize me? Play the part of my mother now that she's gone. A year later and she still haunts me from the grave." - Jules

The Premise

Jules thought she had left her long behind. Her mother was a distant, bad memory that Jules wanted only to forget. Her life was better now, and that's how she wanted to keep it. Then a phone call changed all of that. Soon afterwards she's opening the door to the pouring rain and an unwelcome guest with a letter from her mother. She must now deal with the feelings of her past, and a mother that won't let her be.
