In a desperate attempt to keep his family together, Mitch learns the hard way that accountability is an essential part of real courage. The scream of an ambulance signals that life has changed forever for the Robbins children. With their mother's death, they face a future that is uncertain at best. Long since abandoned by their father, one thing appears certain: They are bound for four different foster homes. When Mitch convinces his younger siblings that running away is their only chance of staying together, they begin an improbable journey to find Uncle Jack in hopes he can help them. Hungry, out of cash and with welfare officials hot on their trail, they have little chance of making it -- until they find a friend in Peggy, a vacationing teacher. When their problems appear to be solved, the plot takes another twist. A fun ride for the entire family, "On Our Own" is also a movie with a message: That the end doesn't always justify the means.
