In a small town in the rural Midwest, two childhood friends sneak away to play pretend in a nearby deserted fairground. Life back in town finds them crippled by trauma and shackled by cycles of silence and shame, forcing them to run away. Suddenly they are left to fend for each other amidst the crumbling fairgrounds, and their crumbling innocence, as they learn to maneuver through puberty and triggering what feels like love.
