The story: "When U.S. Marine Jenny Sutter returns from Iraq, she lays
down her rifle but isn't ready to pick up her children. Buying some
time, Jenny takes a one-way trip to nowhere -- a desert community where
misfit residents gently nurture her wounded spirit and nudge her back
to her own humanity."
Halstead has the role of Cheryl, a therapist.
