SYNOPSIS

Recently-widowed Dawn experiences growing anxiety as her daughter Melanie plans to move away for college. An altercation with a hostile new neighbor aggravates Dawn’s mental condition and she begins to show signs of paranoid delusions. Melanie attempts a series of interventions to help her mom, but Dawn’s paranoia spirals out of control. Challenging Dawn’s reality of persecution ultimately destroys their loving relationship. Melanie is forced to make tough choices as she struggles to keep her mother afloat. A bittersweet story about coming of age in the shadow of mental illness.
