Film with a look at life on the margins of society with honesty and respect. A teenager Charley Thompson, son of a single father working in warehouses across the Pacific Northwestis is eager to have a stability - a home, food on the table and a high school he can attend for more than part of the year. Hoping for a new start they move to Portland, Oregon where Charley takes a summer job, with an ex-horse trainer, and befriends a failing racehorse named Lean on Pete.
