Troubled, homeless 15-year-old Joshua (Josh Hutcherson, ‘The Hunger Games’) lives from hand to mouth on the streets. He lands in Carmel by the Sea, a small town in California known for its local art community, where his prodigious art skill is discovered. As his talent flourishes, Joshua is lured into the underground world of high dollar art forgery. At the same time, he falls in love with Amber, played by Hayden Panettiere (‘Heroes’). Amber is a privileged girl from the wealthiest part of town.
