Autumn seems too serious for her age. While her schoolmates are interested in hanging out and parties, Autumn keeps to herself, plays her guitar and composes her own songs. When she sees a doctor because she feels strange and unwell, she finds out she is pregnant. Autumn does not want to keep the baby, but there is no one to advise or help her in her small town in the middle of rural Pennsylvania. She only trusts her cousin Skylar and, with their small savings, they set out for New York. But things are not as simple as they might seem at first sight: Autumn is still a minor and quite a few weeks have passed since the baby was conceived. In addition, the trip puts the girls’ friendship and trust to the test.
