Frankie, an aimless teenager on the outer edges of Brooklyn, is having a miserable

summer.

He escapes the bleakness of his home life by causing trouble with his delinquent friends

and flirting with older men online. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he

finally starts hooking up with guys at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously

entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to

reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable

consequences.
