"What's wrong with me? Something's got to be awful wrong with me. Why am I never enough for people?" Joanie loves her home - a small town on the Canadian prairies. But Joanie's mum left her, her husband left her, and now her teenage daughter Carol-Ann wants to leave too... If only she could "freeze a bit of time", so nothing ever changed - like the footprints on the moon. As Joanie battles to keep Carol-Ann from leaving to go and live with her dad in Toronto, she is finally forced to confront why she keeps being abandoned by her loved ones, and the loves and losses that have shaped her life.
