She gathers her two best friends to celebrate a milestone in her recovery. Mia, a support group friend, understands Nina on a personal level, having overcome similar struggles. Tara, Nina’s longtime best friend and fellow dancer, is trying to cope with the changes in their friendship, while making sense of Nina’s new way of life. When Nina’s worlds collide, who will she keep alongside her on the road to recovery?
