Kale (LaBeouf) is having a tough time lately. His father has died in a tragic accident, his mom is working extra hours to pay the bills, and he is having trouble at school. As a result of his trouble at school, he is placed under house arrest, ankle bracelet and all. Whilst serving time homebound in the suburbs, Kale begins to notice a suspicious neighbor.
