Struggling with her absent father and a psychologically damaged mother, an intelligent girl (12) must choose between herself and her parents.
Nikki (12) has lots of potential but her path to a bright future is jeopardized by her mother, a woman with borderline personality disorder, and her absentee father who struggles with addiction and whose occasional reappearances severely disrupt Nikki's mental state. Her graduation at high school is bittersweet. With a diploma that doesn’t reflect her potential, and showing signs of mental issues herself, Nikki is far from out of the woods. Will she follow in her mother’s footsteps?
