During a vacation in a Northeast beach town, a lonely teenage boy, Duncan (Liam James), comes into his own over the course of a summer through an unlikely friendship with the manager of a local water park (Sam Rockwell). Duncan's mother, Pam (Toni Collette), alienates her young son through her determined efforts to make her relationship work with her carousing boyfriend (Steve Carell) whose disingenuous attempts to build a family are immediately transparent to Duncan.
