Mae has returned home to help her father while he undergoes treatment for cancer. But she needs a little help herself. She's just lost her boyfriend and her job. (It turns out there are consequences to dating your boss . . .) And she's desperately craving intimacy of any sort. Mae escapes into the the arms of a chain-smoking, imaginary Cowboy who turns her on and ties her up. And she escapes into chatter with her siblings as they attempt to distract and entertain themselves in a hospital waiting room. But ultimately, it's her deep love for her father that teaches Mae to remain optimistic and ambitious in the face of suffering and that gets her back on track.
