Divorced mom Tracy Cross (Goldie Hawn) raises her 12-year-old son, Christopher (David Arnott), in Key West in 1969. Chris narrates the film in voiceover and talks about his ‘screwed up’ life living with his mother in a cheap hotel. Chris’ father (Keith Carradine) was a trained fighter pilot who had served in Vietnam and became seriously disturbed after bombing a civilian hospital. Falling into alcoholism, he deserts Chris and Tracy moving into a commune separating himself from society.
Chris delivers papers and fish to help support his mother who works as a bartender and waitress. He unwittingly discovers that there are drugs hidden in the fish he is delivering and becomes a small time drug dealer out of desperation when he finds his mother, Tracy, has resorted to working as a stripper to support them.
