In Let Me Go, Sylvie Sullivan returns to her small home town in search of love, vengeance and information, but not necessarily in that order. She is looking for answers about her dead mother, her alcoholic psychiatrist father, and why, exactly, the sheriff has it in for her. Assisting her in her quest is her stepbrother/lover, her sidekick Max, and her reluctant stepmother Annie. Ultimately, though, it is Sylvie who must determine what her mother meant in her suicide note, "Let me go."
