Synopsis

A 15-year-old girl whose free-spirited parents provide no sense of stability finds the roles between parent and child perpetually shifting in this family drama. Stevie's life is an unpredictable mess -- a fact she casually credits to her mother and father's excessive lifestyle. When her parents announce that the family will be moving to a town in the German countryside, she furtively hopes that the change of scenery will provide their household with some much-needed equilibrium. As if to will her hopes into existence, she introduces herself to the townspeople as the daughter of a respected diplomat. Her dreams are dashed, however, when her parents continue to fund their lavish lifestyle by resorting to illegal activities. As the house suddenly fills with shady strangers and suspicious undesirables, the precocious girl gradually begins to wander away from her family and down her own path in life.
