A teenager learns about love, life and faith as she experiences the reality of life. More
When Reno's parents announce the family will be camping on an island, she realizes their drug-dependent/ drinking / hyperactive / disabled eccentricities are normal compared to this new plan. She soon learns the island is not the tropical type, but the type in the middle of a busy traffic rotary. Her parents pack a tent, some blankets and a Porta-Potty to camp in the center of the busiest rotary on Cape Cod. So Reno quickly comes up with a survival plan which includes avoiding any and all street lunatics (besides family). Once they arrive, she is at least grateful their camp is hidden amongst tall trees. But events take a peculiar and disturbing turn, first when Reno sees her new neighbor, a bum residing on a nearby bench, and then when young sister Wiley pays the price for their mother's drinking binge in a bloody trauma to the head. Not only must Reno face her own responsibility in the accident, but little Wiley's life hangs by a thread as she withers away daily in a coma. Reno is desperate to help her sister fight for her life. But how?
