Having grown up in a rundown diner on the Alberta Montana border, 17 year-old Jimmy has a big decision to make. His absent father wants him to come and live with him in the States. His single mother, Marlene, trapped in a life of missed opportunities, cant seem to say the words "don't go".
Marlenes gregarious American mother won't shut up, and her quiet farmer dad refuses to tell Jimmy what he should do. Tensions rise, tears flow, and one gawky teenager suddenly becomes a young man.
