Jo is in her junior year of high school in LaGrange, Illinois. She develops an ambiguous relationship with Emma, the new transfer student. She is assigned to read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter and immediately identifies with the main character as an outsider that is perpetually misunderstood. FML: how Carson McCullers saved my life is a story about the transformative power of literature to alter the way we view the larger world, finding a sense of belonging and being true to yourself even when others tell you not to. Minnesota Premiere.
