It's 1976 and eleven-year-old Elizabeth (Julia Stone) is shocked to discover that she is an adopted child, but even more shocking is the person she fixates on as being her probable birth mother: musical superstar Dolly Parton! Determined to meet Ms. Parton (whose music is heard in the film) at a Minneapolis concert, Elizabeth runs away from home. This leads to a cathartic cross-country trek by her adoptive mother (Macha Grenon) searching for a daughter who's searching for a mother - both of them really searching for themselves. A poignant, sometimes funny, very female, coming of age story that explores the tension between creating identity and finding it within.
