"How far would you go?"
15 year-old Lily (Juno Temple) and her best friend Alison (Kay Panabaker) live in an almost derelict town located by the Salton Sea, in the Colorado Desert of southern California. Once an oasis for the wealthy and famous, those days have now faded leaving rundown trailers parks and the crumbling infrastructure of a ghost town.
Lily, who lives with her manic, single mother (Leslie Mann), feels stifled by her existence. When they meet a few visiting street kids, Lily convinces Alison to follow the boys back to Los Angeles.
Despite the journey ahead, Lily is hopelessly attracted to one of the boys. Once in the big city, Lily and Alison succumb to the boys' world of scams and petty crime. Lily is determined to stay and make it work, while Alison is overwhelmed and eager to return home.
When they plan to use Lily as bait for wealthy men, so they can steal their money, some life-changing questions need to be answered. Lily must decide how far she will go to grow up and Alison must choose how far she will go to protect Lily.
