Fourteen-year-old Kris, struggling with the incarceration of her mom, has a penchant for angry outbursts and a disdain for authority. She has a particularly contentious relationship with her neighbor Abe, an aging black cowboy, and when caught trashing his property, she is forced to work it off for him through a form of indentured servitude. Abe's profession - bullfighting – has taken a toll on his body, and he relies on meds to ease the pain. Kris’s presence in his life becomes a necessity when she inadvertently comes to his aid after an injury, and they begin to form an unlikely bond. But when her mom fails to make parole, Kris spirals out, and threatens it all.

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.
