Storyline

For teenage Nola (Sabrina Carpenter), home is the open road. Her self-reliant father (Steven Ogg) is her anchor in a life of transience. The pair crisscross the United States in a lovingly refurbished RV, relishing their independence and making ends meet by doing odd jobs. A shocking rupture, though, casts Nola out on her own. She makes her way to Albuquerque, New Mexico, in search of a mother she never knew. When her motorhome unexpectedly breaks down, she forges a bond with an auto body shop owner (Danny Trejo), and senses the possibility of mooring her ship in this storm.

Amazing movie and amazing Sabrina Carpenter
19 June 2020 | by fatemaalshawafSee all my reviews

Amazing! The writing was emotional, the cinematography beautiful and the acting incredible. Sabrina Carpenter didn't need many lines to bring the character to life, her performance was strong and heartwarming. Look forward to seeing her in more movies!
