Summary
A young outcast known as the Kid who lives with other sex offenders in a makeshift encampment under a south Florida causeway is taken up by a professor of sociology who sees in the Kid a perfect subject for his research. The Kid accepts the counsel and financial assistance of the older man, but when the Professor's past resurfaces and threatens to destroy his carefully constructed world, the balance in the two men's relationship shifts.
