The parents of 14-year-old Stevie (Ceci Schmitz-Chuh) live a freestyle hippie existence in which Stevie finds herself trapped. Whenever her parents get into trouble with the law they have to leave home, and the constant wandering and unbridled lifestyle prevents her from maintaining a social life of connection and belonging. Stevie lives in an atmosphere of physical and emotional destruction, and undergoes a journey of growing up. During the film she consolidates her identity and seeks to set free from the chaotic and unstable family unit. This is a story of growing up, and is based on autobiographical material, according to the creator. In this film she sets the course of her dramatic cinematic direction, in which she places the individual, usually a woman, opposite the society around her.
