Sarah is a good mom to her toddler, Jessie, but she’s bored, lonely, and in desperate need of a change of scenery. After being caught off guard by the reappearance of her college friend, Mindy (played with amazing dexterity by Jena Malone of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE), Sarah embarks on an impromptu road trip with both Mindy and Jessie. What follows is a slow unveiling of history between Sarah and Mindy; while much is up for interpretation, it’s clear that their connection is more than a friendship. The road trip is restorative, until Mindy abruptly buys herself a bus ticket and heads to New York City. Alone. 

Three years later, Sarah and Jessie road-trip once again—this time to attend Mindy’s wedding to a nice musician named Leif (Ryan Eggold, TV’s The BLACKLIST). While it’s clear that Mindy and Sarah have had little contact in those three years, they immediately fall back into their pattern of push-pull. With the exchanging of vows imminent, years of unresolved emotions begin to bubble over.

With deft direction from indie auteur So Yong Kim and a nuanced performance by Riley Keough (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD) as Sarah, this film is a moving, understated portrait of muted desire.  Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants, even when it can’t have it.
