Abe is told to man up as life crumbles and his mom struggles to save their home. His plan to push pills at school quickly goes awry and he is forced to skip town. Abe’s best friend Cammy pleads to join him in search of their childhood dream- a new world downriver on her family’s farm.
Abe and Cammy’s dreamlike voyage runs aground when new friends betray them, destroy their raft, and take their meager possessions. The pair wander the sad decay of Midwest America until they meet Garrett- a shattered soldier disgraced for his forbidden love and abandoned by his brothers in arms.
When Abe attempts to capitalize on his recovered merchandise, Garrett makes the ultimate sacrifice to deliver them to the promised land.
