Realizing that “The Tale” must be true, Nettie confronts her daughter. But when Jennifer reads the pages from her past, the details are different than her recollection. Shaken to her core, Jennifer decides to track down the two coaches and everyone connected to “The Tale” now. But it’s not until the voice of 13-year-old Jenny surfaces that the shocking truth emerges.
