Life for 15 year old Ruthie (Stefania Owen) and her young mother, Rita (Katie Holmes), has never been stable. Fleeing Rita’s latest boyfriend, they find themselves living out of their beat-up car and heading east in search of a better life. When money runs out and their car breaks down, they are stranded in a small town where Rita ultimately lands a steady job waitressing at Tiny’s, a local diner where they begin to develop a family: tender-hearted Marty (Richard Kind), the owner of the diner, and Pam (Eve Lindley), a transgender waitress with big dreams who becomes Ruthie’s closest friend.
