Sophie Jones, a 16 year old living in Portland, Oregon, is navigating high school and grappling with the recent death of her mother. Sophie's younger sister Lucy seems to be coping well and her father, Aaron, is trying to keep things as normal as possible. Physical intimacy with another person becomes the only way for Sophie to feel anything. Sophie tries to keep her relationships strictly for her own empowerment and as a means of distraction. She seeks control through her conquests with the lovable and goofy Kevin, the sexy Sam-Shepard-wannabe Tony and her childhood best-friend Riley. But what happens when Kevin wants to give Sophie more than she's ready to receive emotionally? What if she finds that maybe she does want more than physical intimacy but she's terrified of being vulnerable and receiving love or even pleasure? What if none of Sophie’s relationships with the boys in her life are the answer but they are all part of her journey back to healing herself? These are just some of the questions that the film SOPHIE JONES explores with humor, heart and authenticity. Ultimately Sophie learns that sexual intimacy is a temporary salve but love is lasting medicine and her mother’s death is the material of her life. This isn’t the end for Sophie Jones, it’s just the beginning
