Melanie is about to graduate and leave for university. She would love to enjoy her prom and all its fun and troubles but she must look after her ill mother. Dawn became a widow recently and after the death of her beloved husband she started to suffer from eerie hallucinations. While her mother is sinking deeper and deeper into a pit of her own visions, Melanie has to take charge of the family and face some difficult life decisions. A heart-breaking story of parental love and living with a mentally-ill person.
