Despite their 8-year age gap, Tess and her little sister Liv share a special bond. From a young age it’s apparent that Liv is musically gifted, but she also shows early signs of mental illness. As the pair grow older, Liv slips further away into anxiety, eating disorders and suicidal thoughts as Tess desperately tries to save her. Told through archival footage of Liv’s childhood and adolescence, the film is Tess’ tender and heart-wrenching love letter to her sister and best friend.
