Yet, she develops the survival skills to keep her addict mother out of the reach of the law and hidden from her stepfather, the man responsible for the explosion. When her mother’s suicide forces an end to their nomadic lives, Arlie tries to create her version of a normal life. The return of her stepfather threatens to jeopardize everything and everyone she loves.
