The divorced Margaret leads a quiet, somewhat reclusive life. She divides her time between her shop and the local pool. Shortly after she learns that her son - whom she never really spoke - is deceased, she takes a homeless boy about the same age in her home. Between Margaret and the criminal but charming Joe (Barry Keoghan) an odd relationship develops. Interdependency grows, but their fragile bond is threatened by Margaret's ex-husband Matt.
