Although adults, there is something child-like about these orphans. The eldest supports himself and his challenged brother by petty thievery. One night he brings home a rich older man to get him drunk and rob him. Turns out this man, Harold, is very rich and on the lam from a hitman. Harold establishes the orphans' house as a base of operations and, in a strange, hilarious, and moving way, begins to care for Treat and Phillip.
