A woman steals a baby from a shelter in an attempt to salvage her own lost motherhood. A phone-sex operator sees divine opportunity when a lavender-eyed cowboy walks into her life. A mother and a son selling dream catchers along a highway that leads to a toxic beach manifest two young documentary filmmakers into their realm. And two teenage girls play a dangerous online game with destiny. United by the stark and sprawling landscapes of California's Central Valley, Chelsea Bieker brims over with each character's attempt to salvage - or sabotage - grace where they can find it.
