She left her life of crime, but it didn’t leave her.

After ten years in prison for shooting a man and her boyfriend in a botched break-in, sweet-faced Jenny looks forward to rebuilding her life with her daughter. As she tries to renovate her run-down house into a place fit for a child, she meets a former schoolmate who carries a torch for her. But when the banks deny her a loan because of her record, she has to turn to old, shady channels for assistance. Her life quickly takes a downward turn as specters from her drug-dealing past coerce her into a world she thought she escaped. Equal parts whimsical and thrilling, this riveting drama pits optimism against life’s obstacles and challenges our notions of what can be considered happily ever after.
