In a quiet New Jersey beach town, four women are about to have a very unusual reunion. Kari, Rachel, Janet, and Joy are the 1988 graduates of Deena Boyd’s Home for Disturbed Young Women, a center for teenagers with eating disorders. Thirty years later, the women are back at the house to speak to the current residents about life in remission…but there is still one secret that unites them.
