    • When Jessica's father looses his job, their family life
      becomes an impossible struggle. While her parents try to
      repair their already off-balance relationship and her sister
      becomes increasingly obsessed with boys, Jessica is left to
      her own devices. The lack of communication between the
      parents and their incapability to manage their off kilter
      situation, culminates in a horrifying event, that Jessika is
      forced to witness. In the face of her parents delusional
      denial, Jessica begins to fall into a deep self destructive
      depression. To save herself from her family's dark abyss,
      and despite her parents continuous attempts to hold her
      back, Jessica decides to take her future into her own hands
      and takes a very courageous step...
