Director: Valerie Weiss
In a commanding performance, Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) plays Gloria, an Evanston mother wrestling with bipolar disorder and an imminent empty nest. Her loyal daughter Beth (Madison Davenport) is a bright Illinois high school student who’s been accepted to UCLA, but must now decide if she should stay near home and care for her unpredictable mom, or follow her own path out west. An endearing, unsettling, ultimately moving coming-of-age story that balances family obligation with personal aspirations.
