At the age of sixteen, Miranda has already had to live with her share of disappointments.
Abandoned by her mother, she dropped out of school and has been supporting herself as an employee at McDonalds while her father Charlie resided in a mental institution.
When Charlie is released and sent back home, Miranda finds her relatively peaceful existence completely turned upside down.
Charlie has become obsessed with the notion that the long-lost treasure of a Spanish explorer is buried somewhere near their suburban California housing unit. Armed with a metal detector and treasure-hunting books, Charlie soon narrows the location of the gold to somewhere beneath the local Costco.
Initially skeptical, Miranda soon finds herself joining in Charlies questionable antics in an effort to give him one last shot at accomplishing his dreams.
