While her best friends Kaley and Soph rehearse two ballet performances, and her older sister and de facto guardian Nicole pursues a romance, Ivy struggles to find something, anything, to grab onto--whether it's the hope of returning to dance class, the possibility of getting her driver's license, or the remote chance that maybe her mom will get better in time for next year's Nutcracker.
