Atsuko and Cory are two unlikely friends in the nowhere town of Lancaster, California. Upon receiving news of her dying grandmother in Japan, Atsuko begins to engage in sexual deeds to buy a plane ticket home. Meanwhile, Cory begs her to stay and come help him find the estranged father he’s never met. But as her grandma’s time runs out, Atsuko must quickly choose between her life in America or returning back to Japan for the only family she has left. 

In the presence of Mike Ott.
