Synopsis
Theresa McDermott has chased her “ideal” life as an urban-dwelling, punk(ish) singer-songwriter to the very end of its possible existence.  She is broke, options have run out and she happens to have a few kids she is raising on her own since their dad split a year ago.  Facing eviction and nowhere to go, Theresa packs up her children and what is left of her life and moves back to the small rural town, childhood home and parents she deliberately ran from a decade ago.  Her parents’ mutual misery and depressingly gloomy lives were a “downer” she felt had no place in her fun city life.  Yet from the moment Theresa drives back up her old driveway, it is clear that there have been some major changes. Her parents, armed with a plethora of hobbies, a hot tub and a new philosophy, are not exactly the old folks she left behind.  Theresa needs a job, her parents need their space and a painful family history needs some closure.  Old wounds, unattainable dreams, and some “other things” are exposed as a fractured family works to become whole and a woman with a few kids works to become a mother.
