Tim Travis (Emile Hirsch) is walking through his life like it's a bad dream. His mother Sandy (Sigourney Weaver) is the master of the Travis house — with a healthy drug habit, a decade long grudge, and a secret that is literally tearing her apart. His father Ben (Jeff Daniels) is a shell of the man he once was, crippled by circumstance and blind to the mistakes of his past.

As painful revelations are made that threaten to divide the family, moments of laughter and truth provide the salve that ultimately bring them closer together.
