Gem has grown up being the primary caregiver for her younger sister Dixie in a home where their mother struggles to function and their father's absence is preferable to the occasional moments he pops back into their lives. But when their father tries to reenter their lives on a more permanent basis, the two sisters, now both in high school, are suspicious--especially when they find a bag of cash he hid. The girls take the cash and embark on a three-day trip to Seattle on their own. On their journey of self-discovery, the sisters learn things about themselves and each other that could change their lives forever.
