2014/Ireland (94 min)
Director: Simon Fitzmaurice
On her 16th birthday, Emily and her new friend Arden set out to break her troubled biological father out of a psychiatric institution.
After her mother dies and her father is institutionalized, Emily is placed in a foster home and in a
new school where she is ostracized. When her father’s annual card fails to arrive on her 16th birthday, Emily knows something’s wrong. She decides to take matters into her own hands and, enlisting her only friend at school, Arden, sets off on a road trip to break her father out of the psych ward. As
their journey progresses Emily and Arden become close, and both come to realize important truths about the nature of relationships, both to their parents and to each other.
