Laurie is a successful architect and single mother raising her teenage daughter in Colorado Springs. But behind her well-crafted façade, she struggles to connect with those closest to her, especially her daughter, Jocelyn. To cope with the discord and maintain a sense of control, Laurie relies on bourbon and Xanax. When her assistant, Kendra, begins inexplicably transforming into an inanimate object, Laurie’s life begins to unravel, forcing her to face a transformation that hits much closer to home.
