Jed and Chloe are two defiantly innocent, rather addled lovers. Their affair has suffered a seemingly insurmountable setback, which has left Chloe without a reason to live. Determined to marry her, Jed sets out to discover the meaning of life. It seems an impossible task until he sees Max – a junk collector who professes to hold the secret to existence – on television. Despite the objections of his TV-obsessed parents John and Mary, for whom the loss of cable is an almost inconsolable tragedy, Jed rushes off to the junkyard. But there, instead of the meaning of life, he finds a crazed, near-suicidal man with serious problems of his own. Undaunted, Jed camps out in the scrap-yard, determined to solve his riddle before Chloe slips further into depression.
