When a mother loses her husband, she's left to raise her two daughters alone. As the girls struggle to cope with their father's death, the older daughter, Sara, starts acting out. Desperate to help her, the mother tries therapy, breaking up with her boyfriend, and even moving states. But when Sara's behavior escalates to stealing a car and driving drunk, the mother makes a drastic decision to send her to a strict rehabilitation program. Years later, Sara confronts her mother, asking if she regrets the decision. The mother's response leaves Sara in tears. 😢
