Welcome to Camp Green Lake, where Stanley, who has been wrongly accused of stealing, will be serving a juvenile detention sentence. Not only is the place not a camp, but it's not green and there's no lake: it's in the middle of the Texas desert! Stanley's suspicious when the warden tells him the punishment task of digging holes in the sand all day is for "building character." What's the warden hiding? Stanley is determined to dig up the truth.
