In the wake of the discriminating Save Our Children campaign of the seventies, Lor’s ex-husband threatens to snatch their daughter Andy out of her life. Under the veil of fake names, mother and daughter are forced to go on the run for five years.Their journey takes them to upstate New York where Lor is bolstered by a new circle of friends, a spunky and alluring librarian Jen, and the sweet taste of freedom. But Andy’s father finally tracks them down. In fear of losing Andy forever, Lor must find the courage to fight to keep her child and break away from the stifling world of her past.
