When a 12-year-old boy is killed, his twin brother and his two best friends lose the leader of their gang. Their suburban parents are no help, so the children steer their lives in their own unwise directions.

One of them makes threatening visits to the boy he holds responsible for his brother's death, now in a juvenile detention centre. Another of them is a girl who decides that her soulmate is a construction worker twice her age. And the third is an obese boy who switches from junk food to salad, much to the annoyance of his super-sized parents. A mischievous tragicomedy from the director of L.I.E.
