From meeting her new roommates (three other alcoholics her father met in rehab) to finding out her best friend is dating her ex-boyfriend, everything has changed. Kira comes up with twelve steps on finding her way back to her normal life, but as she goes through them, she begins to wonder: does she even want that past to become her normal again?
