Based on the celebrated final novel by Carol Shields, a writer struggles with her eldest daughter's decision to drop out of college and live on the streets.
After initially thought missing, Toronto-based writer Reta finds her eldest daughter Norah living on a street corner, panhandling and refusing to speak. Norah simply holds a cardboard sign that says, “goodness.”
Starring Catherine Keener (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, CAPOTE) and Hannah Gross (I USED TO BE DARKER), UNLESS is a touching story of a mother’s attempt to understand her daughter and the enduring love of a family put in an unimaginable situation.
