Clem and his best friend Eamon run away in the middle of the night with his father’s car. While the boys are on the road, stuck at home is Clem's sister Charlie. Silently suffering, she represents the neglect at home while Clem represents the freedom on the road, but the home and the road are both contaminated.
The film is ultimately about parents and teachers that aren't paying attention.
