It appears that upon returning home for her annual visit, Chloe finds her mother steadily drinking herself to death while watching re-runs of old Hollywood films on cable. In an attempt to save her mother Chloe begins to relate the story she has always kept from her - what happened during her disappearance at 18 years of age. In so doing she unearths the fact that the history, dreams and conditioning of the mother are inseparable from the daughter, as inseparable as life and death.
