A teenage girl who's struggling with her sense of self befriends an enigmatic Native American man who helps her to move beyond a family tragedy and embrace her true identity in this coming-of-age drama based on a story by Judy Blume (who collaborated on the screenplay with her son, director Lawrence Blume). Feeling lost in the world following the death of her father, 17-year-old Davey (Willa Holland) subsequently finds herself living in Los Alamos, NM, with her Aunt Bitsy (Cynthia Stevenson). Socially awkward and unable to connect with her peers, Davey begins exploring the canyons around her home and meets Wolf (Tatanka Means). Wolf is a kind soul who can recognize the pain in Davey's eyes, and his compassion and wisdom helps to draw out the strength hidden deep inside the grieving girl.

Tiger Eyes marks the first major motion picture adaptation from the work of iconic author Judy Blume, whose books have sold more than 82 million copies in 41 countries. Davey is a 17 year-old girl abruptly relocated by her grieving mother to the strange “atom bomb” town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. With the sudden and violent death of her father, the displaced Davey no longer knows who to be or how to fit in. Everything that once mattered suddenly seems insignificant. But when she meets Wolf, a mysterious young Native-American, while exploring the surrounding canyons, she feels he is able to see past her pain and into her true self. The connection they make brings Davey back from the edge and sets her on a journey from heartbreak and confusion to life and love after tragedy.
