After fifteen-year-old Astrid (Alison Lohman) witnesses her uncompromising but seductive mother, Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer), arrested for murder--both their lives change forever. Shuttled between foster mothers (Robin Wright Penn and Renée Zellweger), Astrid struggles to survive her emotionally harsh world, desperately trying to forge her own identity in an ever-changing environment. The only constant in Astrid's life is her jailed mother's powerful influence. For good, and for bad... In the three years marking her passage from childhood to adult, Astrid must learn the value of independence and courage, rage and forgiveness, love and survival ... to earn her freedom from the past.
