He target and see the Bozo plunge into the water It's a game that fascinates Chad who lives on the Jersey shore where the boardwalk turns into an amusement park every summer He wishes he could shout at the world from the safety of a cage his dad ran out on him and his mom and now everyone seems convinced that Chad will wind up a loser.
