When you are beset by breakups and breakdowns, home is the place where they have to take you in. Aspiring singer/songwriter Aldo "Tramp" Bottoms is a self-professed failure: his rock band has dissolved, his girlfriend has left him, and his parents' marriage has fractured, with his father embroiled in the cheap thrills of a second adolescence and his mother foundering in a fog of betrayal and prescription drugs. Wondering how is he going to make a living, or live at all, Tramp spends a frenzied summer hustling between his family's resort on the Jersey shore and the low-rent rock world of New York City, trying to hold his music, his family, and his sanity together.
