Following in her father's footsteps, Philadelphia Green, aka Pippa, dreams of being a renowned photographer. As president of her high school photography club, she seems to be off to good start, although this year, Pippa has her sights set on a much bigger goal: winning Vantage Point, a photography competition that offers a full-paid scholarship to one of the best photography schools around – the same one her dad had studied at before starting his own career. But, although her future looks bright, it's Pippa’s past that keeps getting in the way. Though proud of the man he was, Pippa struggles to accept the reality of her father’s death, having lost him to cancer only a few months earlier. Traumatized by the event and its aftermath, she attempts to fight off frequent panic attacks provoked by memories of her father as an ailing patient; an issue that only worsens once Pippa returns to the hospital as a volunteer; a requirement for all junior and senior students. At first, the whole thing doesn't seem so bad, especially when Pippa realizes her current crush, Dylan McCutter, is an established hospital volunteer himself. But does the prospect of spending more time with Dylan provide enough of an incentive to distract Pippa from the painful memories and panic attacks that threaten to overtake her completely? Being back in the hospital is no easy task, and possibly, one that Pippa might not be strong enough to handle.
