"Yeah, so things have fallen apart."
Min is sick, Logan is going through some stuff, Thebes is trying to hold everything together (but she's eleven), and Hattie is trying to get over her breakup with Marc. When her stay in Paris is cut short by news that her sister Min is in the psychiatric ward, twenty-eight-year-old Hattie returns home to Winnipeg to assume custody over Min's kids, Thebes and Logan. But Hattie is out of her depth, and navigating this new responsibility is not without its difficulties. Short on ideas, Hattie decides a road-trip is in order. The goal? Find Thebes and Logan's father, Cherkis. Despite having no idea where they're going, the journey may just offer these three travellers a chance to reconcile themselves to each other, as they weather this family crisis together.
