Leaving Normal

For her entire life, 27-year-old Marianne Johnson has been on the move; the decisions she's made as an adult have been total failures, such as her second-most-recent marriage to Curtis Johnson, which brought her to Normal, Wyoming. However, she has an optimistic view of life, always believing that each decision she makes will be the right one. She is a linear thinker and despite being bright in this regard, she has no life or job skills and has never had a paying job besides a short stint in the Army, where she met Curtis.

Conversely, 38-year-old Darly Peters wears her failures openly on her sleeve, bulldozing her way through life. Currently a cocktail waitress in Normal, Darly receives news that her ex-husband, whom she left 18 years ago, has died and has deeded the house which they were building at the time in remote Palmer Valley, Alaska to her. She believes this house will be the first time in her life she will feel settled.

Seeing in Marianne a stranger in need, Darly offers her a ride to Portland, where she will be staying with her judgmental sister and brother-in-law. As that move to Portland also proves to be another disaster in Marianne's life, she decides to accept Darly's invitation to go to Alaska with her. Along the way, they get into one adventure after another, meeting people who may affect their view of life. What will also affect their lives is Darly's Alaska past which leads to life in Alaska not quite what they were expecting.
