    Synopsis

    Cate, a depressed nineteen-year-old girl, has never had an easy home life. Her stepfather Garet abused her from an early age, and her alcoholic mother Deirdre never noticed. With Garet on his deathbed, Deirdre is drinking more than ever, and Cate’s sister Aemelia lashes out at Cate for being unsupportive. As he starts to slip towards death, Cate realizes she may never be able to confront her abuser. In her own form of vengeance, she swaps his painkillers with placebos. She starts to take those painkillers to numb the pain years of trauma have caused, unaware they they contain a highly addictive ingredient: Fentanyl. As Garet’s state worsens, so does Cate’s, until one day his organs shut down, and Cate overdoses. The women of the family have to come together to overcome their struggles.
