A transformative new comedy about the mess that makes us human

Lily is an eccentric, outspoken woman who thought she had it all – a loving husband, a beautiful child and a healthy body, until everything she knew about her perfect life falls apart. Patrick always knew things were a little off, never feeling right in their “perfect” family or their “perfect” body. A day full of surprises sets this mother and child on a transformative journey that will either bring them closer or blast them apart. A funny, messy tale about two souls struggling to understand each other… while stuck in a vintage camper in the middle of nowhere.
