on the fringes of society...” – L.A. Weekly

A mystical, magical adventure when a mysterious teen arrives at a transitional house for young women in Echo Park run by a charismatic Evangelical leader. As the two women struggle to understand each other, the elder is more determined to save the young girl from herself.
