Alex (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a lawyer who is part of a group of environmental advocates who are in the middle of a very important process for her and her career. The attention given his work affects personal life and her unemployed husband, George (played by the film’s director, Chris Messina), announces it wants to divorce her. This gives orderly life upside and begins to understand that there are other things to do outside work. Besides the important process involved, it must now take care of her son 10 years old and sick father. She says “cheerful” and trying to handle all these responsibilities, but with no good consequences.
