Joe Toy, on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by his single father, Frank’s attempts to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick, and a strange kid named Biaggio. He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.

"[a] ramshackle story with a youthful, carefree whimsy."

--Stephen Holden, The New York Times

 

"The film perfectly captures that liminal moment when teenagers live in the space between childhood and becoming an adult."

--Nell Minow, Chicago Sun-Times
