Buckling under the weight of single parenthood — a “processing error” keeps her Turkish husband from returning to the U.S. — Daphne flees her life in San Francisco for the high desert of Altavista with her toddler, Honey. Taking refuge in a mobile home left by her grandparents, Daphne hopes that the quiet will bring clarity. Instead, she’s anxious and drinks too much. Looking for anything to punctuate the long hours, she meets Cindy, a secessionist, and Alice, approaching the end of her life. And when these relationships culminate in a dangerous standoff, Daphne must reconcile her inner narrative with the reality of a deeply divided world.
