Despite being a child raised by a village, Sydney Regan always believed her upbringing defined her while other adversities that she was subjected to caused her to assume that she was irrelevant to the world.
Based on true-life events, Sydney’s Promise is a fictional, time-shifting story of a young girl besieged by the struggle of growing up in an impoverished home with an alcoholic mother burdened by declining mental health. Fortunately, a promise made to an elderly neighbor guided Sydney’s path through life while the gift of a small, ornamental dog always provided her with hope and an imaginary box, buried in the depths of her mind, ensured her survival.
Years later, Sydney begins to question if she has truly fulfilled her promise and wonders why the pathways of her life have made it so difficult. However, life can often provide an unexpected juncture. For Sydney, this occurs as she is traveling on the highway to be with her mother who has fallen critically ill. A song with significant meaning plays on the radio and opens a door to a life that she could never have imagined.
