Laura (Evan Rachel Wood) works as a house cleaner for her father's company but her personal life is far from pristine. As she looks for love in all the wrong places, her heartbreaking behaviour points to hardships in her past. One day on the job, she meets 16-year-old Eva (Julia Sarah Stone), a quiet teenager frustrated with her disciplined life. In Eva, Laura rediscovers an innocent tenderness. In Laura, Eva finds a thrilling rebel who can bring her into unknown territories. The mutual attraction morphs into obsession as Laura convinces Eva to run away from home and live with her in secret, perilously raising the stakes for the impressionable teen as Laura's emotional instability becomes clear.
