13 year old Arbor and his best friend Swifty, both excluded from school and outsiders in their own neighbourhood, meet Kitten a local scrapdealer, and begin collecting scrap metal for him using a horse and cart. Swifty has a natural gift with horses while Arbor emulates Kitten - keen to impress him and make some money. But when Kitten begins to favour Swifty, leaving Arbor hurt and excluded, a wedge is driven between the boys. As Arbor becomes increasingly greedy and exploitative, tensions build, leading to a tragic event which transforms them all .
