EMILY is a heroin addict, working as a webcam sex performer to support herself and her habit. She is also a mother to 7 year old ADRIENNE, and her habit has pulled her increasingly away from her daughter. The child’s father MAC has gotten full custody and has plans to move away with his new fiancée, severing any remaining chance Emily has to be part of her daughter’s life. She tries, with the help of JOAQUIN, a kind and generous undocumented immigrant, to get straight and reconnect with her daughter, which involves a quest to face her own demons in the form of her alcoholic mother. But for Emily, it is too late, and she realizes that, like the Seahorse, Adrienne is in better hands with her father than her own.
