Growing up is a heavy door to close. "Doors" shows the struggle of moving on through a dysfunctional family dynamic as they prepare to move out of their home of sixteen years. As things are being packed away, old memories resurface. Olive has to walk into and walk through a tough memory that she has locked away for some time. In a confrontation with her father, that memory is revealed. Closing the door of her childhood home means closing the door on past memories - good and bad.

Penny is a bossy, confident twenty-something who is well put-together and ready to get to work. She pushes past emotion and gets things done.
