In the not-so-sunny side of California, Alix bounces between motel rooms, taking care of her brothers for her mostly MIA mother. Her classmate Mason is a budding songwriter trying to keep off the radar of his absent father in Hong Kong. Together, they must learn to scrape by without giving up their dreams.

This New York Premiere by Carla Ching (Atlantic/Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation commissionee) is a surprising tale of kids raising themselves and making something out of nothing in the land of plenty.
