Emotionally raw and bracingly honest, this coming-of-age drama balances the pull of family obligation against personal aspirations. In a commanding performance, SAG award winning actress, Taryn Manning ("Orange is the New Black") plays Gloria, a mother, wrestling with bipolar disorder and an imminent empty nest. Dedicated daughter Beth has a bright future ahead, but must decide if she will stay near home to care for her unpredictable mom or follow her own path.
