Jennifer Vogel (Dylan Penn, Sean’s real-life daughter) is the daughter of John (Sean Penn), a ne’er do well who can’t keep his 1970s family stable. After leaving Jennifer’s mother Patty (Katheryn Winnick), he embarks on a vague underground journey apart from the family. When Jennifer comes of age in the early 1980s, she leaves her mother’s home to live with John, hoping to rehabilitate his unsavory character. After a bank robbery conviction they part again, but John shows up later after Jennifer has become a journalist, hoping to make amends.
