Straight shooter Beckham Ellen recommends joining the grange house in Los Angeles, where six other patients live. Of course, Ellen agrees. The house is a little looser than the rules Ellen used: Patients are encouraged to try their own pace and to reward nights for improvement. Former ballet dancer Luke (Alex Sharp) gets the most attention. She entertains Ellen by talking like a Raymond Chandler obscurant character. It turned out to be much more than that: bubble, optimistic and successful in recovery. She encourages six roommates and the positivity seems contagious.
It’s not heartbroken stories at home. Ellen struggles to find her own healing pattern while her friend’s friends watch her conflicts.
