Synopsis: 

Elaine’s husband has left and now the committed Christian fears she is losing her daughter too. Elaine tries desperately to connect with her through tandem bike riding and baking cakes, but this only pushes them further apart. As the gap between them widens, and Elaine struggles to deal with her daughter’s sexuality, they are forced to come to an awkward but tender reconciliation.

It seems neither of them will be able to move forward in life until Elaine accepts her new independence, which isn’t that easy when you’re 55 years old.
