Four boys from an Orphanage all happen to be born in December. Misty, Spit, Maps, and Spark are sent on a holiday trip as a birthday gift. While there they meet Fearless, a motorcycle daredevil that works at the nearby carnival. They also meet his wife Teresa whom they grow a close connection to. The oldest boy refuses to get close to Teresa but spends his time with a teenage girl named Lucy in a secret spot they often meet up at.

One of the boys overhears a conversation that Fearless is having about possibly adopting one of the orphans. He is so excited that he tries to keep it to himself but the others force it out of him. Once they hear the news they all grow eager for a competition to earn the love of Fearless and Teresa.

Maps, the older of the boys, does not think that it is such a big deal and confides in Lucy about the situation. They end up having sexual relations and then parting ways. When he tries to visit with Lucy he learns she has left the beach until next summer. He is heartbroken. He then tries to go talk to Fearless only to find out that he had lied and only cleans up after the carnival animals.

Fearless finds Maps in the caves and explains to him that he used to be a motorcycle daredevil. There was an accident which left Teresa unable to have children of her own and that is why they wanted to adopt one of the orphans.

Eventually Fearless and Teresa announce that they want to adopt Misty. Misty asks if he could stay with his friends since they were his family. They agreed and he went back home with his friends. At the end of the movie the boys are shown as old men releasing the ashes of Maps who had died as a priest over the water at that same beach.
