Description

Candy injects the "fun" in her dysfunctional life. When your brother is found by a neighbor naked and drunk, you're stuck with a caveman of a boyfriend, you have a dickhead boss, and the madness of everyday life competes with your mother's desperate need to appear normal, it takes everything inside of you to find hope. But maybe being normal is just a construct for other people. Maybe busting out of that everyday life is more important than fitting in. After years of trying to save everyone but herself, high-schooler Candy Cahill decides it's her turn. Set against the backdrop of New York's largest mental hospital in the 1980s, Creedmoria is the story of one girl's dramatic getaway attempt. Family, after all, is an institution. Sometimes you gotta break out.
