Hollis Wallace (Michael Beach) has a unique job. A metal scrapper, he spends his days trudging through Seattle, amidst alleyways, dumpsters, junk heaps, and dockyards, hoping to come across the riches that come from found copper, aluminum, and other such treasures. Able to support his ailing mother with his monetary return, Hollis is set in his ways, content with his lot in life. When he meets an 18-year-old runaway (Anna Giles) with her own troubles, though, he finds his routine challenged, and soon he finds that there is more to life than the cast-off scraps of others, in this visceral drama shot in and around the south end of the Emerald City.
