He is clamped in the jaws of New York City inertia: he wants to travel but has no money; he needs a job but has no prospects; he still shares an apartment with his widowed father (Peter Fonda); and, perhaps worst of all, the premature death of his mother still lingers and has left him emotionally walled up.

Lily feels eternally claustrophobic and rebellious, living with her manic, single mother (Leslie Mann), clinging to hope for something more exciting than visits with her young and already washed up Aunt (Kate Bosworth). When they meet a few visiting street kids, the girls’ bond is finally tested and Lily convinces Alison to follow the boys back to Los Angeles.

But in the big city, Lily and Alison quickly fall into the boys’ world of scams and petty crime. Lily is determined to stay and make it work, while Alison is overwhelmed and eager to return home.
