In a town near Little Rock, Lucy Fowler works hard for a construction firm; on weekends she drinks, goes home with someone, and come early morning, wakes and leaves as fast as she can. She cares a lot about her father, newly back in town, a painfully shy man who has nothing to say to her. She does go to a Holy Roller church with him about the same time that she starts, fitfully, a relationship with Cal Percell, new in town and a good guy. She kisses him sober, but still has demons to confront. What’s the source of her careless ways; can she turn coal into a diamond? –IMDb

I don't know why, but I loved it. Maybe I would know sometime in the future. For now, I know that it's a simple straight forward movie that makes you feel good whether you're in a relationship or not. It's a bright movie with a simple plot and easygoing screenplay and very natural acting.
