Foster child Hollis Wood's latest "home" is with loving but increasingly absent-minded Josey Kale. Threatened with yet another move, Hollis plans a daring trip to a house abandoned for the winter. She reflects on its owners, her previous foster family, and the events that keep her from accepting them. Through her drawings, Hollis makes an emotional journey that will lead her to her true home. Hope Davis gives a gentle, captivating performance as the life-hardened girl who processes her doubts about being part of a real family. Slight changes in vocalization make the supporting characters distinct and just as enchanting as Hollis Woods herself.
