I Believe In Unicorns tells the story of a teenage girl who escapes her obligations to her disabled mother by running away with an older boy. As their new relationship turns emotionally and then physically abusive, she attempts to escape to a fantasy world but ultimately must learn to face her stark reality and reconnect with the life she left behind.
