When a queer daughter begrudgingly returns home to Las Vegas for a weekend with her estranged, homophobic sister and people-pleasing mother, her gun-toting dad lets it slip that her mom’s cancer is back with a vengeance, forcing her to decide whether or not she can be part of the dysfunction that is her family.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
