Ever since Hurricane Katrina, it's been Ramona and her family against the world. But when her sister Hattie gets pregnant, Ramona knows that her dream of getting out of her small town is slipping away. The return of childhood friend Freddie provides a welcome distraction, but as Ramona's feelings for Freddie grow, she begins to question whether her identity as an out-and-proud lesbian fits as well as it once did. A nuanced exploration of poverty, sexuality, family, and joy.
