Doctors diagnose Daisy who's been in and out of hospitals for most of her sixteen years with a rare and lethal form of brain cancer. Opposed to an experimental treatment that promises to turn Daisy’s final days into a torturous, excruciating nightmare, her father Kodi “kidnaps” her.
Together father and daughter flee across the country, trying to outwit law enforcement and stay one step ahead of Daisy’s mother, who has made their flight—and the uncertain future of her daughter—a national news story. On the road, Daisy and Kodi each discover a love they never bargained for, and learn that life is about more than looking for an exit.
