Jessie is a talented vocalist, she's desperate to make it in the music business and find her father. Her journey will reveal a different truth.
Jessie is seventeen years old, a struggling musician living on a trailer park with just a pit bull terrier for company. That’s fine by Jessie. She’s interested in only two things—making it big in Memphis and finding her musician father. But she doesn’t even know his last name, and there’s no way her mom will tell her. That’s if Jessie was actually speaking to her mom—which she’s not.
Fate plays its hand quickly. Jessie loses her place in her band, her job in a record store, and the trailer burns down. Worse, she nearly loses her dog, Bear. Her quest is triggered. Jessie and Bear head to Memphis to win a music contest and search for her father.
Jessie will not ask for help. Yet help manifests itself in the curious shape of a traveller called Finch. The kind of help Finch offers nudges at the edges of reality itself. Finch tells her that life works “from the inside out.” That who we are on the inside affects our outside world. What Jessie realises is that the effects of her inner turmoil are all around her.
