Jo spends most of her time on the road with her
truck driving father, Bobby. Jo's mother abandoned her at birth,
and Bobby began taking Jo on the road when she was just a baby.
Jo always shared her father's love of traveling the open roads of
England and Ireland. She grew up loving the rhythm of the road.
When Jo is twelve years old, she and Bobby pick
up Cosima, a hitchhiker. Cosima is a country singer from Texas and
Jo immediately feels closeness to her. Their paths will cross many
more times in the coming years. Jo develops an unhealthy obsession
with Cosima and her band.
Bobby has been prone to dark moods of depression
for several years. When Jo is sixteen, she is abandoned by him.
Young and alone, Jo tries to cling even tighter to Cosima and the
band. Jo's thoughts become "fuzzy", she has trouble distinguishing
between what is real and what is not.
Completely alone and on her own, Jo must come to
terms with the reality of her life in order to move on to the future.
