Milo doesn't quite have it all together. His acting career has stalled. His Latvian girlfriend just dumped him. His miserable father has vanished. And Pablo and Wallace – and then Wallace's mother, too – seem to have moved into his house. Really, the only person Milo likes is Robertson, the autistic eleven-year-old who lives next door. So when Robertson gets bullied and his dad moves out, Milo is finally spurred into action. Milo being Milo, though, even his best intentions go awry, and soon Robertson's dad is in the hospital, Milo's lost in the woods during an acting experiment and Gustaw, his dad, may have returned from the dead.
