Wise beyond her years, teenager Mickey (HIFF 2019 Breakthrough Artist Camila Morrone) is trying her best to be a center of stability for her alcoholic, opioid-addicted veteran father Hank (James Badge Dale), who still hasn’t recovered from the recent passing of his wife. Feeling stuck in her small hometown of Anaconda, Montana, Mickey is dreaming of going to college and forging an independent future for herself, but the love she feels for her father pulls her back into his orbit over and over again. The recipient of HIFF’s Melissa Mathison Fund support out of our 2017 Screenwriters Lab, Annabelle Attanasio‘s feature debut is a riveting and poignant chamber piece that enthralls and heralds an impressive new directorial talent.
