Emily (Cheung) and her common-law husband Lee Hauser (Johnston) are heroin addicts who abandoned their young son to Lee's parents. Lee, a faded 80s rocker, dies of an overdose, and Emily is sent to jail, where she tries to get clean. After her release, Emily wants to reconnect with her son, but grandma Rosemary (Henry) hates her; grandpa Albrecht (Nolte) is more willing to give Emily a chance. Emily struggles to keep off drugs while attempting to find work and mend fences but the character is so prickly and self-centered that she garners little sympathy.
