Philip and his mom live on the road, constantly moving, supporting themselves by credit card theft. But for them, movement is not just a flight from the law, but a philosophy of life. When they crash the car, though, they are forced to stop for a while, and are taken in by Pedro, a hardware store owner in New Jersey. While things go well, Philip begins to get mysterious phone calls from his long absent father. The pair move to Staten Island and prepare to settle down for the first time. However, Pedro starts to appear as a ghost and worse, Philip's father shows up and threatens their new found domestic life.
