Karen Kingsbury’s The Bridge is the sweeping tale of Molly Callens (Katie Findlay) and Ryan Kelly (Wyatt Nash), two young students who share a profound friendship their first semester in college, a time that becomes the defining moment of their lives. At their favorite bookstore, The Bridge, they spend countless hours studying and inspiring the other to dream their 10-year goal. They bond with the owners of The Bridge, Charlie (Ted McGinley) and Donna Barton (Faith Ford), a couple who designed the bookstore as a place where people can connect and be part of an extended family. But when a misunderstanding tears Molly & Ryan apart, it takes a tragedy at The Bridge to bring them back together. Can they open their hearts to second chances – for them, for Charlie & Donna and for The Bridge?
