Plot Summary: When his fiercely self-reliant mother dies unexpectedly, eleven-year-old Atticus is wary of the authorities and flees deep into the forests surrounding his Catskills home. Wandering the woods in shock, relying on what meager food and shelter he comes across, Atticus' grasp on reality begins to fray. His sheltered, off-the-grid childhood dissolves into a directionless life on the move, avoiding other people while trying to differentiate between reality and fantasy.
His nerves worn thin, Atticus latches on when he encounters Carter, a scruffy, pot smoking drifter, who lives out of his car and sells handmade necklaces on the festival circuit. A wary alliance forms, with each dependent on the other, but neither sure he is making the right decision.
