Storyline

Young adult Tyler Kent lives with her selfish mother, Joan Kent. While Tyler has just been laid off from her bookstore clerk job in the store being shut down, Joan runs a scam collecting disability while she isn't really disabled, the money especially important when the child support payments from her ex-husband Octavio Soler, a Mexican immigrant, ran out. They divorced when Tyler was an infant, Tyler never having seen or heard from her father since, he who she doesn't remember at all. Joan believes they've hit the jackpot when they learn that Octavio has passed away, he having left everything to Tyler. Not wanting anything from a man she felt abandoned them, Tyler turns everything over to Joan. But when Tyler learns that Joan has hid certain keys aspects of Octavio from her all these years in her own selfishness, Tyler decides to run away to live at least for the time being in Octavio's rundown and cluttered apartment in the city, partly to get away from her mother, but more to learn...

I liked it!
20 April 2019 | by the_nephilim71See all my reviews

I liked it a lot but I also identify with the plight of the lead to try and figure out who she is on the inside and explore her sexuality. I think some of the low reviews are because the reviewers just 'don't get' the point of this movie.
