Olivia is a teenager who has spent her life taking care of her alcoholic mother. She pours herself into the performance art of dance as a coping mechanism to process the neglect she experiences as a little girl. By “dancing it all away” and collecting bumper stickers (or platitudes) that she tapes to her ceiling, she is able to overcome her challenges. Along the way, she learns that heroes can be flawed yet still be heroes and that life can’t be boiled down to one-line platitudes.
