Joel has been released from prison after ten years. While trying to regain a normal daily structure, it becomes apparent that his time in jail has left an ineradicable mark on him. Days blur into one another and the streets are filled with shadows. When the situation spins out of control, he is reluctantly convinced to seek help for finding a way out of these dire straits. One night, he meets Clementine. Much younger but equally damaged, the two cross paths again some time later. At first he resents her teenage wittiness and recklessness, and she his cynicism and seriousness. The two slowly bond, learning that there is no escaping from the things said and done, but there is in what you choose to do with them.
