After spending several years in a mental institution, Charlie (Michael Douglas) is sent home, reuniting with his teenage daughter, Miranda (Evan Rachel Wood). Charlie becomes obessed with the notion that a long lost Spanish treasure is buried underneath their local suburban California Costco. Disconnected from reality and his daughter’s life, Charlie’s erratic behavior futher strains their relationship and completely disrupts Miranda’s peaceful existence.
