If you’re looking for a story with weak women, this one is not for you. Never Tell follows three forces of nature, their strength, in many ways, stemming from their brokenness. Yet each battles different ghosts and in no way becomes copies of the others. Each woman is unique and possesses her own voice and way of fighting the hand she’s been dealt.

It’s even less common for another executive to be the person who is to blame for the explosion.
