Will, an army veteran and his thirteen year-old daughter, Tom, live in a national park outside of Portland. They have a tent for shelter, a ration of food and Tom has been taught how to read, write and hide from intruders. The two have become used to their unconventional way of life, only visiting the city for necessities, but once they are found by local authorities they must try to reintegrate back into society. Their dependence on each other starts to be tested when they attempt to be a more conventional family and with Tom beginning to grow up. Based on the American novel, 'My Abandonment', this is a remarkable exploration of housing, poverty and the environment from the perspectives of those on the fringes of society.
