Two young schoolboys find their close-knit friendship beginning to unravel as they fall under the spell of an unscrupulous scrap-dealer in this bleak drama based on the story by Oscar Wilde. Consummate outsiders both in school and in life, 13-year-old Arbor (Conner Chapman) and his best mate Swifty (Shaun Thomas) find their futures looking uncertain after being expelled from school. Despite their shared setback, both boys remain determined to provide for their families, even if it means performing shady jobs for local scrap-metal merchant Kitten (Sean Gilder). Meanwhile, despite Arbor's desperate attempts to impress and emulate his questionable new mentor, it's Swifty who truly interests the manipulative Kitten. As this sad reality slowly begins to dawn on Arbor, a deep divide opens between the troubled teen and his former best friend, paving the way for a tragedy that will affect the lives of all involved.
