Seventeen-year-old Miles desperately clings to his adolescence as his world falls apart around him. His elder sister can't find a job. His brother, newly returned from victory on a dubious reality show, won't cash the check. Not to mention the vortex of garbage in the ocean that threatens to destroy everything. With the help of Kid, a neighborhood butcher, they seek out a hoarder who may have the key to helping his family survive.

Recommended for mature audiences.
