Story
Daniel Finley, the free-spirited son of a Native American tribal councilman and Irish mother, attempts to navigate his worlds while hobbled by mental issues and staggering contempt for compromise. His storyline weaves amidst those of the volatile Cheer, a self-medicating female inmate prone to reliving her past through her stories; and the hapless Warren during a reluctant hotel stay with a familiar young prostitute, Jasmine. A non-linear and often darkly humorous meditation on familial love, forgiveness, and ultimate redemption.
