Synopsis

In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive, a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby, find themselves living in Oklahoma. As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had: she enrolls him in school, makes him do his homework and tries her hardest to be a good mother, and with the help of an old friend from Oklahoma, Walt, Olive "provides" for Bobby in the only way she knows how. But despite her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behavior both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby's unfortunate "run-in" with the local and wealthy businessman Kent, and Olive's criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.
