    Seventeen-year-old "Hank" has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything--who he is, where he came from, why he's running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Walden by Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David--or "Hank"--and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of--Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. As Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past he realises He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past to stop running and find his way home. A Clever look at identity and who we are without our baggage.
