"[A]n extremely personal film that has the tone and structure of a diary."
The past comes back to haunt Inga (Marcia Gay Harden), a poet who finds herself re-creating the events of her youth. She develops breast cancer and begins to use alcohol to quell the pain (in a similar fashion to her mother), and becomes fixated on a house that reminds her of her childhood home. Will she find a way to break the vicious cycle' Hayden's real-life daughter, Eulala Scheel, plays Inga's daughter.
