Pregnant 17-year-old Novalee Nation runs away from her Tennessee home toward the bright lights of California, accompanied by her boyfriend, Willy.
But Willy gets cold feet and abandons her at a Walmart in Oklahoma.
Novalee's life savings amount to $5.55, so she moves into the Walmart, sleeping there at night and venturing out during the day.
With the help of the eccentric Sister Husband and Lexie Coop, a nurses' aide, Novalee tries to get her life in order for the sake of her expected child.
