Footer Davis' mother just "ain't right".  That's what they all say.  Actually, she has bipolar disorder.  When she is sent to a mental hospital, Footer misses her so much.  To distract herself from thinking about her mother, Footer and her best friend Peavine Jones set out to investigate the disappearance of two children.  Both girls take the investigation seriously and want to find out what happened.  But Footer begins to have hallucinations and worries that she is going crazy just like her mother.
