A coming-of-age comedy about how a girl becomes a woman whether she wants to or not.
Twelve-year-old Bird is mature for her age, a thoughtful sixth grader who dreams of doing the grocery shopping so that all food groups are represented but whose emotional wisdom starts to slip when her body begins to develop.
After her first period arrives in an embarrassingly public way, Bird turns to her single mother for guidance; however, her mom is a flighty stoner who finds this milestone just as befuddling as her young daughter. Already frustrated by their recent move to Echo Park from the Valley, Bird wishes everything would start making sense again.
