Elliot, an Iraqi War vet and his cousin Yazmin, a recent divorcee, search for a way out from the shadows. Odessa, Elliot's estranged mother, has found her escape --a new online family of fellow addicts who she can keep stable and sober each and every day. As the fractured family negotiates the limitations of loyalty, friendship, and community, they also discover acceptance and grace.
