It's 1985, in the depths of a recession. A single mother and former musical theater diva, Diane and her 15 year old daughter Alice pack up their U-Haul, chasing the fantasy of a better life. Although beaming with charisma, Diane has been locked for years in a cycle of depression. Her older daughter Cherie had managed to keep Diane somewhat emotionally and financially intact, but now she wants out. And Diane is panicked. Alice and Diane crash land into blue-collar Nashua, N.H. and Cherie's wedding day, eager to be part of Cherie's new life. But they find themselves unwanted. Unlike her sister, Alice deeply connects with Diane's vibrant imagination and sense of drama. Now with Cherie's rejection, Alice bravely vows to take over the role of keeping Diane and the household afloat. But the task is far from easy. Diane is struggling with a new cycle of depression and their mounting debts have followed them to Nashua, where unemployment is high and drug dealers and pawnshop owners define economic opportunity.
