Synopsis

Jack (AnnaSophia Robb), a street-smart teen in trouble with her probation officer, needs to lay low, so she cons her way into a job as live-in companion to a child with severe autism, Glory. Intending to stay a few weeks and make a few bucks, Jack is stunned when she makes a positive impact on Glory. Meanwhile the family, in particular the mother, Kay (Famke Janssen) makes a positive impact on Jack. And the wounded, scrappy survivors begin to heal each other a little bit -- until the law catches up, the truth comes out, and Jack must choose: save herself or help someone else.
