Synopsis by Jinko Labitag

Nola (Sabrina Carpenter), along with her father Clint (Steven Ogg), travels through the United States in their refurbished RV, enjoying their independence and surviving off of odd jobs. When one day she finds herself all alone, she decides to travel to Albuquerque to search for her mother, a person she hasn’t met before. Before she can do that, however, her vehicle breaks down and she is forced to halt her plans. She then strikes up an unlikely friendship with Miguel (Danny Trejo), the owner of the auto body shop her motorhome is in. Written and directed by Ani Simon-Kennedy.
