In New Bedford, Massachusetts, a dysfunctional family portrayed in all shades of black-and-white, lead forgotten lives. 15-year-old Billie, who imagines Billie Holiday as a sort of fairy godmother, has to navigate the evolving challenges of her life while she plays mother to her 11-year-old brother, Nico.
