Synopsis

Leah spent her childhood hunting imaginary Nazis with her mother, fantasizing about ancient aliens, dieting and fighting with her hypercritical grandmother, collecting psychiatric diagnoses, contemplating suicide, and falling in love with John Waters’ films in a teen mental ward. With humor and heart, her stories explore the complexities of history, trauma, mental health, addiction, loss, struggle, and survival among three generations of women in her Jewish family.
