To add fuel to the fire, Missy’s mom was arrested just before she could blow out the candles on her fifteenth birthday.
To escape her guilt and her father’s alcohol-induced rages, Missy volunteers at a nearby store where she busies herself to shut out the feelings that her therapist seems to be pushing her to feel.
