Three teenagers are restricted to an remoted united states property that might thoroughly be on some other planet. The trio spend their days taking note of countless selfmade tapes that train them an entire new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their own family homestead is immediately assigned a new which means. Hence 'the sea' refers to a huge armchair and 'zombies' are little yellow plant life. Having invented a brother whom they claim to have ostracized for his disobedience, the uber-controlling dad and mom terrorize their offspring into submission.
