The coming of age story follows the life of protagonist Theodore Decker who survives a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York but his mother sadly dies.

Having no relatives in the city, 13-year-old Theodore, acted by Ansel Elgort, moves in with the Barbours, his estranged friend Andy's family who welcome him in.

As he settles into his life with the family, Theodore becomes close with Samantha Barbour, acted by Nicole Kidman, encourages his love and interest for art.

The family even consider adopting him but his alcoholic and estranged father Larry, acted by Luke Wilson, and his girlfriend Xandra, acted by Sarah Poulson, reclaim and relocate him to Las Vegas.
