Maxie Wolfe is becoming a notorious female paparazzo, a dubious goal that reflects her flight from the past. One scorching night, outside the Bad Mama Supper Club, Maxie scuffles with Fisher Jacobs, female sports agent. They're both arrested and sentenced to anger-management classes. Things go from bad to worse for the pair in Hollywood, until they flee to Fisher's family in Minnesota. Once there, Maxie begins to bond with the Jacobs family and to use her talent to take photos that aren't ugly celebrity exposes. Reluctantly, she uncovers startling secrets about the Jacobs family. Girls in Ice Houses is a thoughtful yet humorous exploration of complex family dynamics, and the nature of art and creativity.

Quirky characters, an original and unpredictable plot, and a winning combination of comedy and domestic horror reminiscent of Edward Albee.
