Jodelle Ferland plays Jeliza-Rose, a spritely young girl with negligent, drug-addicted white trash hippie parents. [[ImaginaryFriend Her only friends are the severed Barbie doll heads she wears on her fingers]]. After her mother dies of a drug overdose one night, she and her father Noah (JeffBridges) flee to Noah's mother's farm in the countryside of Texas. Finding it abandoned, they settle in anyway. Noah himself dies of a drug overdose on the first night. But because Jeliza is used to her parents being unconscious for long periods of time, she doesn't realize this and she leaves him upright in his armchair, slowly decaying, for the course of the film.

** Also, Jeliza Rose's mother being more inept than her father doesn't mean much, given that the first scene we see Noah, Jeliza Rose is ''preparing his heroin injection for him'' and she (possibly never) realizes he's dead because she's so used to him just sitting there in a drug fugue.
