After Kate’s husband of over thirty years dies, she withdraws into a world of vodka and grief – and Halloween costumes. Her husband loved Halloween, and Kate takes comfort in wearing his old costumes. When she befriends three lonely teenagers who share her enthusiasm for dressing up, her friends and family are appalled. Alarmed by her increasing recklessness, they insist she go back to the woman she was – just as she is discovering the woman she might become.
