"In rural Virginia, Liz and Jean (who’s called Bean) learn about their mom’s privileged past and why she keeps running. They end up staying for high school in the town where their family used to own the largest factory, and have now fallen from grace. Their widowed uncle is kind but reclusive, so Bean gets to know her father’s family, who are from the wrong side of the tracks." -- Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
