Roy’s trouble-filled life, however, takes a turn for the better when he encounters a peculiar “running boy” who answers only to “Mullet Fingers”. The two boys save a colony of burrowing owls from being disrupted at a local construction site. Along the way they learn many life lessons as they deal with many challenges.
