Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Heshers favorite things. And they are what Hesher brings into the lives of TJ and his father, Paul when he takes up residence in their garage uninvited. Grief-stricken by the loss of TJs mother in a car accident, Paul cant muster the strength to evict the strange squatter, and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Heshers anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.
