Mark runs what is left of a used car lot, which he inherited when his father just stood up and left home. Anita appears out of the blue in her brother’s workplace, but it will not be an ordinary family visit. The longer she stays in her childhood house, the more she realizes that leaving home and her brother will not be as easy as years ago. On the other hand, her visit might change Mark’s life forever. They may have to work together to say farewell to their father and the American dream, which he wanted them to share.
