It's the late 1950s. High school dropout Ace flees his broken home and takes up residence at his childhood playground, but where's his beloved tree house? It's been replaced by a seesaw. On the day of their high school graduation, Ace's old friends pay him a rare visit before heading off to college. As they look back at the days in the tree house and forward to what is to come, will their encouragement be enough to push Ace to join them in embracing life as an adult?
