Sam, an intellectual and a poet at heart, has settled down with Laura–a serious, passionate woman–a steady job, and a nice apartment. His estranged friend, Frank, a charismatic but emotionally damaged street-singer and hustler, is still out living his unbridled neo-beatnik life. But Frank desperately misses the only true friend he ever had; and so he returns, intent on upending Sam and Laura’s cozy world.

When his troubled niece, Becky, shows up at his isolated home in the Costa Rican jungle, Sterling finds his carefully crafted reclusion going to pieces. Becky is pure, unfiltered teenager: insubordinate, invasive, bored, and—as Sterling discovers—deeply traumatized by an accident involving a schoolmate back home. Sterling, who’s basically sworn off people and the world, doesn’t want to get involved, but Becky’s bleak circumstances soon force Sterling to make a life-altering decision.
