Overview
A pregnant, idealistic teen (Jena Malone, Saved!) finds that her chaotic trailer-park life conflicts with her dreams of having the perfect family in this quirky dark comedy.

After being rejected by her jerk boyfriend (Erik von Detten), Rena Grubb (Malone) looks for a way out of her turbulent teenage existence. Pinning all her hopes on her dad (Chris Mulkey) - who was sent up the river for murder seven years ago - Rena convinces her mom (Michelle Forbes) to drag the whole family to the annual prison picnic. Here, against a backdrop of sack races, barbed wire and conjugal trailers, Rena finally comes to terms with her inmate father and her dreams for the future.
