The story is about Marley: a 17 year old kid who fills his days with skating, graffiti, smoking weed and girls (plural). He’s an only child who lives with his parents. His home situation is at a critical point: his father suspects his mother is cheating on him and there’s constant tension in the house. Marley gets put in the middle of these situations and seeks refuge outside. Outdoors and indoors are two separate worlds with completely different rules. Outdoors, the world is malleable, and though there isn't much to do, adventures can be created. Indoors, Marley has no control and no influence and is at the mercy of the whims of his parents.
