Summary: Based on the novel by award winning Canadian writer Carol Shields, Unless stars Academy Award® nominated actress Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich, Into the Wild) as a mother whose eldest daughter Norah (Hannah Gross) suddenly drops out of college, runs from the family and is found on a Toronto street corner, with a hand-lettered cardboard sign reading ‘Goodness’ on her chest. The story follows her family as they struggle first to ‘rescue’ Norah, then to understand her incomprehensible decision in taking this strange path.
