15-year-old Dawn Bundy:
lives with her alcoholic mom,
contemplates killing God,
and is a loner.

13-year-old Dawn Bundy:
lives inside the cave in her,
is trying to suppress her memories of sexual abuse
and is trying to forgive her abuser.

Dawn struggles to forget, all the while remembering. She misses her dad who has disappeared and worries about a mom who is increasingly dependent on drugs. Dad's shady dealings come back to haunt them when Lee Harding, a convicted felon, is snooping around for some stolen money and guns. Dawn knows where the stash is...but is she willing to tell Lee? Just as the fray is about to happen, Dawn's dad shows up with tragic consequences.
