When city girl Liz is banished to a rural goat farm on the outskirts of Portland, the 1 5-year-old feels her life spiraling out of control.   She can’t connect to her father or his young girlfr iend, and past trauma adds to her sense of upheaval.  The only person who seems to keep h er sane is a troubled boy who is fighting his own demons.  But all of this changes in one histor ical instant.
