A remarkable story of unconditional love, based on Jeannette Wall’s best-selling memoir. Four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their free-spirited parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children’s charismatic father captures their imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. When he drinks, he is dishonest and destructive. Their mother abhors the idea of domesticity, reluctant to take on the work of raising a family. Influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father, Jeannette finds the fiery determination to carve out a successful life on her own terms.

“The adaptation is a powerful, poignant tale of resilience, strength, compassion and forgiveness that will have you in tears.” FRESH FICTION
