When her dad's lawnmower goes missing, high school senior Sara thinks she knows just where to look -- in the pile of junk rusting on a sagging porch of a poorly maintained home in their neighborhood. The place is an eyesore, owned by a scary man who trolls around the streets and never says a word.

Though she doesn't find the mower at the house, Sara begins to notice the man around town and, for want of a name, dubs "Homer." He's creepy, spooky, and more than a little weird.

When Sara gets a job working late at night, she begins to see Homer more and more on her way home in the dark. What's up with him? Does she have the courage to find out?
