Logline

YOU ARE HERE

Mickey, a resourceful loner, lives by himself in an RV and spends his nights reliving his childhood by watching home videos that his mother made for him before she passed away; however, the RV Mickey lives in is inside a shopping mall, set up for display by a local RV dealership. Mickey has built an ecosystem for himself inside the mall, stealing change from vending machines and then winning stuffed animals from the arcade’s claw machine to sell them to passing shoppers. He’s saving all the money he makes to buy an RV of his own and fulfill his dreams of seeing the Grand Canyon, but when a greasy mall security guard catches onto Mickey’s residence, he has to stay one step ahead or give up on his dream.
