A small-town girl who has always feared change and suffers from a debilitating case of option-paralysis finds that staying stagnant can be far more frightening than venturing out into the world in a feminine-slanted tale of small-town America from director Bryan Goldsworthy. Jude Farnie is twenty-five years old, and life in the isolated community of Beaumont, Texas is all she's ever known. Content to care for her mother Grace and her elderly grandmother Nofia, Jude's inexplicable stagnation betrays her deep-rooted desire to strike out on her own life-adventure. Upon graduating from college for the third time, however, Joy quickly discovers that the only thing she fears more than change is things staying just they way they currently are, and always have been.
