Nina Baldwin’s perfect life unravels after she is diagnosed with breast cancer. As she struggles to remain a good wife and mother, her husband retreats into harrowing memories of his childhood in a family of Nazi sympathizers, and her awkward, extraordinary daughter sinks further into pre-teen misery. Isolated and afraid, Nina seeks escape in places she never imagined she would.
