Baby.  Can you imagine anyone naming their daughter Baby?  And if that isn't enough, she's abandoned as well.  Now she's a teen in the foster system with few options.  This may just be her last chance.  So here she is somewhere in New Hampshire living with some ex-hippies.  These people seem nice enough although they are a bit off.  It doesn't matter to Baby.  She has no plans to stick around for long.  As soon as her boyfriend can find her, she's out of there.  She and Bobby don't need anyone else.  But for the time being, Baby will try to hang out and not make too many waves.  And it isn't going to be all that bad.  You see, the old hippies have some really cool dogs.  They run sled dogs and they are teaching Baby to run her own team.  Yea the dogs are cool but they are not Bobby.  Will Baby blow her last chance in the system or will she find something to work for?
