When Billie Jean Fontaine vanishes one October night in her bare feet with only her truck keys, those closest to her begin a frantic search. Her daughter, Pony, a girl struggling against being a teen in the middle of nowhere; her killer dog to whom she cannot tell a lie; her husband, The Heavy, a man haunted by his past; and the charismatic Supernatural, a teenage boy longing only to be average. Each holds a different piece of the puzzle, and they must come together to understand the darkest secrets of their beloved and expose the mysteries of the human heart.
