with the law, the two develop an unlikely friendship and decide to travel together across the American Midwest in the early 1980s. Both are fleeing a past they would rather forget, with the hope of building a future that is free from the many problems that have plagued them thus far. Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters, including the leaders of a commune in the hills of Minnesota who attempt to lure Lucas into a lifestyle he has no interest in pursuing. Rather that the idyllic answer to the boy’s troubles, their methods simply become another form of manipulation and abuse.Desperate to find freedom, the two escape the commune and cross the border into Canada. But as much as they want to separate themselves from their past, they come to realize the freedom they seek may always remain just out of reach. Will they finally be able to stop and face up to the troubles that put them on the road in the first place?
