Growing up in rural Kentucky, Taylor Greer always knew she would get away someday. After buying a used car, Taylor heads west, with no set destination in mind. Along the way she "inherits" a young Native American girl named Turtle. Just after Taylor and Turtle settle in Arizona and begin to finally fit in somewhere, Taylor faces a challenge for Turtle's custody and must first come to terms with her own feelings about abandonment, belonging, love and friendship, before she can begin fighting for her "daughter."
