America, 1955. A sixteen-year-old boy is forced to leave home. Alone in the world for the first time, he's new at everything. He's working in the beet fields, running from the law, discovering the 'carny' life and learning to survive on his own. With a pair of Levis and money in his pocket, he thinks he knows all there is to know about life...until he meets Ruby.
