In 2002, Mallory made a promise to herself to quit drugs and live a better life for the sake of her new son. Over the following thirteen years, Czech filmmaker Helena Třeštíková follows Mallory as she battles through toxic relationships, endless knock-backs from social services and having her son committed to a psychiatric facility. Despite living in her car and being rejected from all angles, she keeps pushing to get off the street and help others around her. A desperate portrait of life on the fringes of society, Třeštíková's latest film is a true testament to human resilience.
