This is the story of a teenage boy named Stanley, a victim of bad luck due to a curse from his big-stealing ancestor. When a pair of sneakers fall from the sky, he believes it is destiny, because his father is working on an invention about recycling old shoes. People think he's stolen them and he's given two choices - JAIL or CAMP GREEN LAKE. He's from a poor family and has never been to camp before, so, obviously, he chooses CAMP GREEN LAKE. When arriving, he finds out that there isn't a lake there, and the teenagers sent there have one thing to do - dig holes. As Stanley starts his adventure at camp green lake, he meets the wacky characters - ZigZag, X-Ray, Armpit, and more. He's given a nickname, too - Caveman. Shy and quiet boy Zero - named that because they believe he's too stupid to understand anything - opens up to Stanley. Stanley teaches him to read, and discovers he's not as stupid as people think, but a very good mathematician. But one day, something happens to trigger an adventure - one that will change their lives for the better, and make Stanley realize an important fact- he's not under a curse. He - and anyone else - can be incredible if they believe they can.
