Jennifer has an eating disorder; but her family doesnít believe her. When she finally talks them into admitting her into the Samuel Tuke Center, she knows that she may have made a terrible mistake. While she imagined a peaceful and supportive environment, what she really finds are locked doors, strict rules, and people she canít trust. In order to leave, she must make her way through the strict program and examine her relationships with others, both inside and outside the facility.
