Reid Scott (“Veep”) shows his star potential playing Billy, the older brother of an adopted sister Nikki (Grace Kaufman), a troubled teen in desperate need of help. When their unstable mother Susan (Barbara Hershey) is institutionalized following a tragic accident that left her widowed and Nikki without the father she relied on so heavily, Billy and his wife are forced to take in the difficult sister. The resulting household tensions cause significant career and household strife that ends in big life changes for an initially reluctant Billy. But as the bond between the siblings strengthens and he grows into the role of brother and protector, Billy discovers that, in order to really help Nikki, what he really needs is a plan to replace the psychotropic drugs that have been prescribed for her. Amidst the incredibly personal, compelling, and often laugh-out-loud funny family drama, director David Lascher crafts an important and powerful statement about medicating our children.
