The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete
During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister's hard-living mother is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete alone to forage for food while dodging child protective services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is Mister's vulnerability rather than his larger-than-life attitude.
