Mister is a 13-year-old boy living amongst the poverty stricken suburbs of Brooklyn, New York. Living with his substance-dependent and off-the-rails mother, he has developed an unusual level of maturity and independence and tries his hardest to help his family by trawling through the local newspapers for jobs for his mother that wouldn't run background checks. However, when she is arrested and jailed, Mister and 9-year-old Pete set out to take care of themselves - even if it means begging on the street - whilst hiding from police, child protection services and dangerous criminals his mother was involved with. As the weeks wear on, Mister starts to truly understand that he is on his own now when it becomes clear that his mother is not going to come back for him even when she's free.
