Teenager Billie, a 15-year-old girl who fantasises about Billie Holiday as a sort of fairy godmother, and younger brother Nico share time between their separated parents - father Adam is a chaotic drunkard with a loving heart for his kids who is working as a Christmas Santa, and mother Eve, who has redefined her identity in a brazen style since leaving Adam and is now living with a new and obnoxious boyfriend Beaux. The kids feel uncomfortable around Beaux, but visits to their mum have introduced them to new friend Malik, a boy as equally adrift as they are. Half in desperation and half in a spirit of adventure this trio sets off on a running wild trek across Massachusetts, crossing paths with a variety of American eccentrics, angels and desperados.
