Synopsis

Vibrant, beautiful, and soon to graduate high school, Mickey lives with her widowed father Hank in rural Montana. A veteran of the war in Iraq, Hank is a time bomb of hurt, grief, and damaged pride – occasional glimpses of the affable man still living inside him are overshadowed by outbursts of rage fuelled by alcohol and opioid addiction. Aside from Hank's veterans' benefits, Mickey’s part-time job is all that is keeping her family afloat – and she is the only thing keeping her father from screeching off the rails. As the loving housekeeper and babysitter in this father-daughter role reversal, Mickey is inexorably led to a terrible choice: accept the opportunities for a bright future or be sucked into the vortex of her father’s dead-end tragedy.
