Marla Conroy finds herself an adult, depressed and full of regret. She starts writing a letter to a person from her past and finds that she can’t stop. As she talks about her childhood and her teenage years, a story unfolds that not even she fully comprehends. Marla’s mother is pathologically focused on winning back Marla’s father, a troubled alcoholic with a charming façade, and uses the trust and love of the people around her to this end. Marla, however, wants nothing to do with her father and finds herself caught in the middle of her neglectful mother’s plans.
