Sarah’s day started like any other, but chores, ’80s power ballads, and eager anticipation of the arrival of her taciturn teenaged daughter are interrupted when she is struck with a condition that causes her to rise from the ground and away from her family and home. With time slipping away and no cure in sight, can Sarah’s family come to terms with her fate?
