Blue-collar mom and US Army Reservist Kelli (Linda Cardellini) finds life spiralling out of control when she returns to the Ohio rust belt from the Gulf after a tour of duty. Drinking more than she should and driving an emotional wedge between herself and her husband (Michael Shannon), she quits her job and drifts, alienating those around her and posing a real risk to the welfare of her kids. Writer-director Liza Johnson's debut feature eschews melodramatic emotional shocks to quietly chronicle a damaged mum slipping through the cracks.
