sYNOPSIS

Teenage Nola grew up living out of a van with her beloved father Clint, two nomads against the world. When tragedy strikes, Nola is confronted by the reality that life as an outsider may not be her only choice. She must engage with others to integrate herself into a society she has never known. As she slowly expands the relationships in her life, she is faced with the decision to get off the road for the first time, or to forge onward - with only her wits and memories as her road map.
