    Seit ihrer Geburt lebt Pearl im Auto, sie vorne, ihre Aussteiger-Mutter auf der Rückbank. Zwölf Jahre stehen die beiden jetzt schon am Rande eines Trailer-Parks irgendwo in Florida. Draußen vor der Windschutzscheibe ist die Welt den Waffen verfallen: Kinder wachsen mit Pistolen statt Haustieren auf, Schießübungen immer und überall, mal Alligatoren, mal den Fluss, mal Polizisten im Visier, und sonntags sitzt man beim Gottesdienst mit der geschulterten Schrotflinte in der ersten Reihe. Doch im Ford Mercury wirken andere Kräfte, hier lernt Pearl das Träumen. Bis mit Eli ein Mann auftaucht, der das Herz der Mutter stiehlt.
