One idyllic summer on Cape Cod, Ellie (Alexa Vega), a talented young musician with the opportunity of a lifetime, is torn between obligation to her family and the chance to realize her dream. Saddled with the care of her five siblings as a result of an alcoholic mother (Amy Jo Johnson), a breathtakingly irresponsible father (John Savage) and a terrifyingly misguided preacher of a brother (Caleb Landry Jones), Ellie falls in love with an aspiring young writer, Harper (Patrick Mapel), who dares her to take a chance!
As the story propels towards the dramatic conclusion, the lines between dreams and reality, freedom and repression, twist and turn into a shocking climax.
