Fifteen-year-old Deena (Hilary Swank) strikes out with violent outbursts against her parents, and her acts contribute to the problems of an already dysfunctional family. Her mother Cynthia (Joanna Kerns) and ten-year-old brother Adam (Adam Hendershott) already use alcohol to solve their problems. Deena's father, Todd (Dan Lauria), solves everything by engrossing himself in work. Matters come to a head when Deena threatens her parents with a knife. Now, Aunt Judith (Kathleen Wilhoite) steps in and takes over custody of Deena who now tries to deal with her problems, which, of course, include those of her family members as well.
