Come Early Morning

Lucy (Ashley Judd) is a woman struggling with a personal life that has been reduced to a spiral of drunken one-night stands. While making yet another attempt to connect with her emotionally crippled father (Scott Wilson), Lucy meets Cal (Jeffrey Donovan), a newcomer who sees much more in her than she’s willing to acknowledge. With no experience in commitment and unable to get past her shame, Lucy pushes Cal away, leaving herself alone to come to terms with how her family’s broken and distant relationships have left her incapable of intimacy and growth.
