A lonely boy discovers his own impressive sense of industry.
In a rural American outback, a young boy with only himself, a disengaged father and a shallow set of circumstances as company, decides to make things happen for himself.

He is primed and ready, by just being a regular boy in curious conditions, to launch himself into discovering how to work with what he has in order to get the things he wants.

Cinematography, directing and editing deliver that curious beauty that happens when the mundane becomes stunning.
