Charlotte’s life is in disarray after her fifteen-year-old daughter moves in with her deadbeat, squatter boyfriend. Charlotte’s husband stops going to work, and instead spends his days watching the Iran-Contra hearings; the police can do little to bring their daughter home; and Charlotte always seems to be a step behind her family, never quite understanding what they are telling her.
