"Set in the early 1970s amid the specter of the Manson girls, when the peace and love movement begins to turn ugly, this is the story of a runaway teenager's disappearance and her sister's quest to discover the truth"--

1969. Sixteen-year-old Lucy is about to run away with a much older man, to live off the grid in rural Pennsylvania. Her rash act will have vicious repercussions for both her and her older sister, Charlotte. Charlotte's youth has been marked by the burden of responsibility, but never more so than when Lucy's dream of a rural paradise turns into a nightmare.
