Wendy, a near-penniless drifter, is traveling to Alaska in search of work, and her only companion is her dog, Lucy. Already perilously close to losing everything, Wendy hits a bigger bump in the road when her old car breaks down and she is arrested for shoplifting dog food. When she posts bail and returns to retrieve Lucy, she finds that the dog is gone, prompting a frantic search for her pet.

The owner of the local garage charges Wendy $50 to tow her car to the garage, despite the garage being just across the street from where her car broke down.

It's the story of a young woman named Wendy, very well played by Michelle Williams, who has only a few hundred dollars to her name, a car and a dog named Lucy.
We also learn that Wendy is a mother, a reveal you might miss if you blink at the wrong place, but by the final act, all we want is to see Wendy reunited with Lucy and even that reunion doesn't go where we expect it to go.
