In a slanted home beyond the reaches of a drought-ridden town, an isolated Hispanic family accept an impossible blessing and name their only son "Sailboat". Sailboat brought fresh love and hope to his family who have forged a simple but proud life in America, but one afternoon he brings home something more: a "little guitar". From this moment, Sailboat and his ukulele are inseparable, and when his ill grandmother requests he write a song for her, Sailboat meanders through adversity to deliver the unimaginable - the greatest song ever written.

Will the mysterious song breathe one last miracle, or reveal a hapless twist of fate that will return his family to a house held up by a stick; a car with no doors; an unchanging wardrobe; and a friend who can't blink..?
