Agnes "Apple" Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens) has grown up with an abusive addict for a mother, June (Rosario Dawson). She decides to run and find her father, Tom Fitzpatrick (Brendan Fraser), discovers he's now a Wall Street broker with a family. She stays with them for a little while, but is soon forced to leave when she realizes she's pregnant and Tom doesn't agree with her choice to keep the baby.
After getting in a car accident and ending up in the hospital, she's taken under the wing of chaplain Father McCarthy (James Earl Jones). He offers to let Apple live at a shelter for pregnant young women run by a spiritual woman named Kathy (Ann Dowd). Apple gradually begins to bond with the other girls at the shelter, eventually considering them her real family. But June soon finds her again, and she's determined not to let go of her daughter.
