Mickey (Camila Morrone, NEVER GOIN' BACK, IFFBoston 2018) is a strong-willed Montana teenager navigating a loving but volatile relationship with her veteran father, Hank (James Badge Dale), a traumatized opioid addict whose care she feels responsible for providing. Mickey runs the household, pays the bills, and monitors Hank's physical and mental health, all while holding down school, a part-time job, and a meager social life.

In a desperate search for independence and her own identity, Mickey will risk family, heartbreak, and her standing in the only place she can call home.
