Synopsis / Plot
An unstable dad (Michael Douglas) who after getting out of a mental institution tries to convince his daughter (Evan Rachel Wood) that there's Spanish gold buried somewhere under suburbia. At the age of 16, Miranda has already had to live with her share of disappointments. Abandoned by her mother, she dropped out of school and has been supporting herself as an employee at McDonald's while her father Charlie resides in a mental institution. When Charlie is released and sent back to their home, Miranda finds the relatively peaceful existence she's built for herself completely disrupted. Charlie has become obsessed with the notion that the long-lost treasure of Spanish explorer, Father Juan Florismarte Garces, is buried somewhere near their suburban California housing unit. Armed with a metal detector and a stack of treasure-hunting books, Charlie soon finds reason to believe that the gold resides underneath the local Costco. He then encourages Miranda to get a job there so that they can plan a way to excavate after hours.
