Rachel is a rebellious teenager who is uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in mom Lily's San Francisco home. Lily hauls her daughter to the one place she swore she'd never return, her mother's Idaho farm. Georgia is not your typical sweet and doting grandmother. She lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules, demanding anyone who shares her home do the same. Now Georgia is saddled with raising the young woman and it will require each patient breath she takes to understand Rachel's fury. But as Rachel succumbs to her summer of misery, Georgia notices something is changing within her granddaughter. Given structure and responsibilities, Rachel is letting her guard down and learning compassion. Her journey will lead all three women to revelations of buried family secrets and an understanding that, regardless what happens, the ties that bind can never be broken
