How do you make a life for yourself when all you have are lies? Growing up in a sleepy town with parents who adore her, it’s difficult to understand why Frances is the way she is: friendless, manipulative and at times very cruel. But once she leaves home for boarding school, a different Frances begins to emerge as she starts to question everything that she had accepted as normal: her beloved father, her overbearing mother, her grandmother who refuses to speak – her whole white-picket fence life. When uncomfortable truths finally emerge, will the family be able to survive?
