Sixteen-year-old Ana's abusive psychopath divorced father manipulates the legal system to gain custody of her and her bother and block all contact with her loving mother. Ana secretly utilizes social media as her only contact with the outside world, her mother and the one person who seems to “get” her, her mother's boyfriend Jack, who finds himself caught up in a psychodrama intertwining Ana's contract killer father, her mother whom Jack loves, the broken family law system and his own checkered past. In the chilling climax of this powerful modern-day fable of love and salvation, Ana, forced to take matters into her own hands, orchestrates a desperate scheme to save herself, her bother and retain hope for some semblance of family.
