Plot Summary

For as long as Heidi can remember, her mentally challenged mother has had only 22 words in her vocabulary, and the precocious 12 year-old doesn't have a problem with that. Bernadette, their loving neighbor, provides them a bubble of love and protection. Then, a new word pops out of Mama's mouth - the mysterious soof - and it changes everything. Heidi is propelled on a solo cross-country journey of discovery and loss, truth and identity.

    The strong cast, including John Heard, Dash Mihok, Jacinda Barrett and Cloris Leachman, sells the warm, at times cloying material with earnest conviction. show more
