Abbie is on the run with her mother and takes photographs of everything around her to remind her where she has been. Dually desperate to retain her mother's love and a sense of place, Abbie becomes a virtual paparazzo of life as the two go to the beach, visit the aquarium, and forever stay on the run, chased by a hurricane.
