ABOUT
THE STORY

Single and hardworking, Jocelyn finds herself suddenly dependent on others, namely her family, after getting foot surgery. Her sister Dinah, a drug addict, pilfers her prescriptions, electronics, and finances while still seeking connection. Her mother, Jackie, an exhausted Amazon worker, prefers her downtime with firemen at the local pub to sudden caregiving, and tries to convince Jocelyn that a friendly pizza-delivery boy could be “The One.”
