Where do you run to escape your past? Ella Donovan is an orphan, being raised by Grand Ma, her cruel, alcoholic grandmother. They live in a run down trailer on the "other side" of the railroad tracks in a cold, Podunk Minnesota town. Early on, Ella realizes that her only chance to escape is to get her education, get out of town and never look back.
