In this character-driven coming of age story, high school senior Beth struggles to decide whether to stay local for college where she can continue to be the stabilizing force in her bipolar mother's life, or go to her dream college across the country. She vents her inner turmoil on her father who, unable to endure the mother's mental illness, has moved on and begun a new family. Beth seeks distraction from her problems in a new boyfriend whose troubled past allows him to empathize with her situation. The family's secrets are exposed when a jealous classmate seeks to reclaim the boyfriend's affections.
