The Catcher in the Rye meets Turtles All the Way Down
Nineteen-year-old actor Arlo likes nothing more than howling across the skyline with best friend Luke.
But when something irreparable happens and familiar black weeds start to crawl inside him, Arlo flees to the other side of the world, taking only a sketchbook full of maps.
There, he meets fellow traveller Mizuki and they decide to get lost together. But how far can you run before you lose yourself completely?
