JUNO screenwriter Diablo Cody makes her feature directorial debut with this romantic comedy-drama about a young woman whose close brush with death prompts her to reject her strict religious upbringing and venture to Las Vegas on a journey of self discovery. Twenty-one-year-old Montana native Lamb Mannerheim (Julianne Hough) was a devoted churchgoer until the day she was nearly burned to death. In the aftermath of that terrifying experience, Lamb realized that life was too short to spend singing hymns in her small-town church. It was time to start living, and the hearty insurance payout lining Lamb's pocket would give her the freedom to go wherever her heart desires. Convinced that Las Vegas is the best place to experience all that she's been missing in life, Lamb packs her bags, and books a flight to Sin City. It doesn't take her long to make a few new friends (Russell Brand and Octavia L. Spencer) once she hits the Strip, and soon this once-devout girl is discovering just how much the world has to offer. Nick Offerman and Holly Hunter co-star.
The comedy follows a sheltered young woman (Julianne Hough) who loses her faith after a plane crash and decides to go to Las Vegas to experience the wild side of life. On her journey, she meets unlikely companions (Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer) who inadvertently help her find her true self.

Writer-director Diablo Cody (Academy Award® winner for Best Screenplay, Juno, 2007) delivers this hilarious tale of innocence lost and paradise found, starring Julianne Hough (Safe Haven), Octavia Spencer (Academy Award™ winner for Best Supporting Actress, The Help, 2011) and Russell Brand, Get Him to the Greek). After a nearly fatal accident, 21-year-old Lamb Mannerheim (Hough) is beginning to realize that the world is much bigger than her small, God-fearing Montana town. Armed with a big, fat insurance payout and a checklist of untried sins, there’s only one place for her first taste of temptation…Las Vegas! Now this wide-eyed, innocent girl will have to navigate the bright lights, seedy bars and dark alleys of “Sin City.” And, with the help of a few new friends (Brand and Spencer), Lamb just might survive her strange adventure and discover what it means to really live. Holly Hunter (Academy Award winner™, Best Actress, The Piano, 1993) and Nick Offerman (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”) also star in this oddball odyssey of lost souls, broken faith and cheap cocktails…a true journey of the heart.
