In this warm and humorous story of mothers, daughters and absent fathers, young Honey Barkin leaves her unconventional family determined to live an independent life, but a few careless choices later finds herself all too alone on the gritty streets of Los Angeles.

Armed with misguided confidence she goes from a lusty schoolmate crush to a seemingly exciting and adult affair with a middle-aged man, then drifts into a precarious foothold in a Silver Lake hipster household. Each is fun while it lasts but when things go awry, she doggedly tries to muddle along, counting on others to help her, without realizing just how dark life can become. With each setback she becomes ever more vulnerable to the consequences of her misguided choices. Finally unable to turn to anyone for help - her friends and family kept at arm's length, and she and her mother estranged by their secrets - she finds within herself what she needs to survive, discovering her own ingenuity and strength just when she has nearly lost everything.
