Unable to comes to terms with his father abandoning the family, teenager Grayson Toki blames his overbearing mother for their situation. When he starts failing his exams his world falls apart and instead of studying harder he skips school and hangs out with the local ‘bad boys’, stealing bananas to make intoxicating Jungle Juice. His mother can do nothing to stop his behaviour, instead she loves him from a distance, watching and waiting for him to learn from his mistakes.
