In one violent, devastating instant, each faces a drastically different and uncertain future. But as Chris Williams sits in his demolished vehicle staring at the car that had just caused the death of his wife, his unborn baby, and his nine- year-old daughter and his eleven-year-old son, he commits to doing something extraordinary: to forgive.
