When they were orphaned at a young age, sisters Hannah and Julie had to learn to look after themselves. Years later and all grown up, Hannah, with her steady job and happy marriage, seems to have fallen on her feet. The same can't be said for Julie, however. First pregnant at fifteen, and now with three children from three different men and living with a serious drug addiction, she needs help. It's up to Hannah to step in, but in doing so she discovers, in the most devastating way, that her own life might not be so perfect after all...Toys lay scattered everywhere and a pile of urine-soaked bed linen was stacked in front of the broken washing machine ... The young man sitting at the kitchen table, idly fiddling with his iPod earphones, sighed loudly and shook his head in ... a#39;I told you the machine was fucked and I told you not to turn it on until I got it fixed.
