Star (newcomer Sasha Lane) lives on the fringes of American society, resorting to dumpster diving in order to feed her half-siblings. When she meets Jake (Shia LeBoeuf) dancing in the aisles at a K-Mart, their attraction is instantaneous and magnetic.

Star places the kids in care and immediately joins Jake on a cross-country drive with a gang of misfits: slugging hard liquor in the back of vans, crashing in motels and selling fraudulent magazine subscriptions. When their relationship begins to evolve and they dream of family and home, the queen bee of the group begins to interfere and challenge Star’s place in the crew.
