Two sisters, Loretta and Raven, grapple with the loss of their parents after a tragic accident. Loretta, in an attempt to record her memories, documents their story with her VHS camera. Raven falls ill and sends Loretta to get medicine for symptoms she doesn’t yet understand. Along the way, she meets Mariah, a young girl looking for friendship, and Thomas, Raven’s boyfriend reeling from Raven’s state. Loretta struggles to make her film as her grief continues to flow through her. As she spirals from her feelings, it falls upon Raven to be there for Loretta as Loretta was there for her: A new family structure of support is borne out of necessity in the face of sorrow.
