But her ex-boyfriend, Nico, does.

But when Nico starts collecting items from the quirky strangers they meet along the way, Ali starts to sense that these objects arent random. Somehow they seem to be leading her to an unknown truth about her father. A truth that will finally prove to Ali that some things - even broken things - are worth saving.
