Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When 11-year-old Daley's parents separate, she is thrust into a chaotic adult world. Unable to place her allegiance, she vacillates between the liberal, socially committed realm of her mother and the conservative, liquor-soaked life of her father. But when her mother leaves, Daley's father's basest impulses are unleashed and she must choose between her own survival and the charismatic father she loves. As she nears adulthood, Daley retreats from the New England country club culture that nourishes her father's fears and addictions — until he hits rock bottom. Now she must decide whether repairing the badly damaged relationship with her father and helping him free himself from sixty years of dependency are worth the loss of her career and possibly even the man she loves.
