Mickey and the Bear

Mickey and the Bear

Mickey is a small-town Montana teenager, who has seen a little too much life for her age. Having lost her mother to cancer, she has become a full-time caretaker for her volatile and ungrateful father Hank, an Iraq war veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Mickey is between a rock and a hard place, as the only visible life alternative – an early marriage and a young pregnancy – is equally suffocating. A tightly woven and multilayered coming-of-age drama that builds its climax in an accumulation of low-key heartbreaking glimpses.
