Storyboard Text

  • Jack and Mia are living in poverty with their newborn identical twin daughters, Liza and Rosie. Over all, they are content and happy, although they are struggling to support their family.
  • Mia gives birth to another baby girl, Caroline. A few weeks after giving birth, Mia discovers she is pregnant again. Jack is upset because he has lost his job and can no longer support his wife and daughters. He begins to get depressed.
  • Mia gives birth to a fourth daughter, who Jack names Isla. Jack's depression has caused him to lash out at the girls and his wife and Mia has become a shell of her former self. Liza fights with Jack and yells and argues with him while Rosie, who is much more sensitive and reserved, tends to sit with her mother for comfort. 
  • Jack walks out on Mia and the girls, leaving Mia devastated. Her depression grows worse and she is unfit to take care of her daughters. Rosie dedicates her time to taking care of Mia, while Liza watches over Caroline and Isla. Liza is resentful towards her mother and towards Rosie for taking care of Mia. Liza and Rosie fight frequently and Liza threatens to leave and go live with Jack, although Jack left no information as to where he was going.
  • Mia discovers that she is pregnant with her fifth and final child and is absolutely distraught throughout her entire pregnancy. Giving birth kills Mia and the children are left to fend for themselves. Liza and Rosie are ten, Caroline is six, Isla is five, and the new baby boy, Spencer, is a newborn.
  • Five years have passed and Rosie and Liza have both gotten jobs. Liza sells herself to men and has become a frequent drug user and Rosie has to make a living by stealing things and running a pawn shop. The younger kids are traumatized by the way their sisters act and treat them and Liza discovers that Spencer is severely autistic. The kids are eventually found by authorities and taken into foster care, where they are separated and Liza is taken to rehab and then juvy for her actions. Rosie is also arrested, but charged as an adult because she is arrested just days after turning sixteen. She is put in jail and the three young kids never see their older sisters again.
