In 1963, a young teenage girl moves with her mother and sisters from the suburbs to the downtown of a Midwestern city when her parents divorce. Emmie, a naive, curious and intelligent girl, wants the security of her suburban life but has always dreamed of adventure in faraway places. She must take risks, meet new people and become independent. The change is difficult for all because of her mother's worsening health and lack of a steady income. When Emmie's mother takes a job, she cares for her sisters at night. In her new neighborhood, Emmie meets people from different cultures and who are both good and evil."
