Spirited teenager Emily has always been close to her philosopher father Robert. This bond is tested when Emily's mother dies and her father is institutionalised. The plucky teenager is sent to live with foster parents and she runs the gauntlet of accusing stares at her new school, where no one wants to engage with her, except for a classmate called Arden. When Emily hatches a hare-brained scheme to help her father to escape from hospital, Arden pledges his unwavering support.
