Terrified by his daughter's increasingly reckless behavior, Toby Sedgwick takes a tough love approach and enrolls Ava in Mount Hope, a wilderness behavioral camp for troubled teens. Ava quickly realizes that the camp is little more than a prison, warehousing and abusing kids for their parents' money. And after spending a disturbing weekend completing the parent portion of treatment, Toby knows it too. As Ava desperately searches for a way out of Mount Hope, she is faced with memories of a family tragedy resurfacing. The pain of what happened to her mother and sister eight years earlier in Thailand can no longer be suppressed. As father and daughter fight to get back to each other, the truth may irrevocably tear them apart.
