Fed up with her dysfunctional family, Laura (Hillary Wolf) runs away from her stepsiblings, half-siblings, divorced parents and stepparents just before the family takes a trip to Hawaii, supposedly as a celebration for her forgotten birthday. Whether hiding out with Josh (Dan Futterman), the one stepbrother Laura likes, or hitchhiking with quirky strangers, Laura is determined to escape her family -- even as her family seeks to find her and their own equilibrium.
