Joe Toy, who is on the edge of entering maturity, is finding that the efforts that his single father, Frank, is making to govern his life are more frustrating to him. After a family game night that ends with Joe calling the cops on Frank for false reasons, Joe declares freedom for the last time and escapes to a clearing he found in the woods with his best friend, Patrick, who was also sick of his life at home with his annoying and seemingly lame parents, and a strange kid named Biaggio who just so happened to tag along with them. He declares that they are going to build a house there, free from the oversight of their parents and the responsibilities of adulthood.

After they have finished constructing their makeshift home, the three young men find that they are in complete control of their own destinies despite being isolated in the woods. Joe asserts that he and Biaggio are the ones who did the hunting, while Patrick disappears to get some fruit. After a few weeks have passed, it is reported that Patrick and Joe are missing, and it is covered by several news networks. Frank is convinced that Joe is making fun of him after he finds a piece of Monopoly that was used during the game night in Joe’s bookbag, which was left on a bus.
