As a single parent Martha was sure she was giving her two children the perfect life. When daughter Augusta turned 15 things started to happen; first the cigarette, then the blue pipe and the little bag Augusta says are aspirin. Martha can't seem to get through to Augusta, and Augusta it appears is intent of doing everything to hurt herself. Martha doesn't know if she's confronting teenage adolescence, craziness, her own failure as a parent, or all three.
