The great lengths a father goes to protect his daughter from the past,
and what bonds are worth breaking to discover the truth.
Missy stumbles upon evidence in her father’s office that she was secretly adopted, yet Jack swears to whiskey in hand, that he doesn’t know anything about her real mom. Missy realizes that finding her real mother could solve the sometimes-aching void throbbing in her chest. Despite it all, her father is clear that he won’t help.
Only one person is willing to help: Missy’s neighbor, Cole, a gorgeous and talented Broadway star. A chance meeting on their opposing fire escapes quickly turns into something more intense than Missy’s ever known. As they dig to expose the connection between her birth mother and adoptive father, Jack’s life unravels. Her father’s usual clever strategies turn into one abrupt bad decision after another, as though he’s running out of time. Jack alludes that the truth may put their lives at risk, however this is Missy’s chance to take back her life, and live by her own rules for once.
American Honey weaves together a journey in two timelines about coming-of-age, leaving your past behind, and then recapturing it.
