Rescue zoo: Sherry Wickman is on the way to achieving her professional dreams when she moves back home and faces a fruitless job search and the family dynamics that set her on the path to becoming a therapist.

Tigers Be Still uses smart dialogue and dark comedy to tell a story about depression and finding a way off the couch.
