When Iggy Corso gets kicked out of high school, theres no one for him to tell. His mother has gone off, his father is stoned on the couch, and because the phones been disconnected, even the social worker cant get through. So he leaves a note and goes out to make something of his life, but thats not so easy when youre sixteen, live in public housing, have no skills, and your only friend is a law school dropout whos thinking about joining the Hare Krishnas.
