Sinopse

Eighteen-year-old Lila is at a crisis point in her life. Alone and in the bath, she has just given birth to a premature baby she did not even know she was carrying. The baby is born dead. Numb with shock, denial, and disbelief, the young girl fears that her past will suffocate her. Now she must hide the truth from her family and friends, and she cant even begin to think what will happen if what happened is ever revealed. Unaware of Lilas troubles, her mother and brother slog their way through unsatisfying lives of their own. Meredith, stuck in a menial job at a travel agency, seethes with inner frustration at the disappointing hand life has dealt her. Jason endures school and gets through his days only by obsessing about sex, as all fifteen-year-old boys must. Feeling more alone than ever, Lila finds an unexpected ally in Doris, their dwarfish next-door neighbour. What Lila doesnt realize is that reclusive Doris has been spying on her for almost a decade. Lila is the daughter Doris always dreamt of having. Doris reaches out to Lila for her own reasons, and the two hatch a plan. Will this unlikely pair of conspirators succeed in burying Lilas shame, or will her secrets be revealed?
