As always, this summer started with

a trip to Grandpa's cabin.

Grandpa will teach us to fly

like real ninjas.

-People can't fly.

-Ninjas can. Grandpa said so.

He's pulling your leg.

We thought our summer would be

really boring.

Boy, were we wrong.

Pull over, Grandpa!


So much for peace and quiet.

What's going on? What's out there?

Maybe a jackrabbit with

a bad attitude.

Good afternoon.

As you can see,

there's confusion here...

...but one thing seems clear to me:

There's something rotten

in the land of the eagles.

Lousy lndians. Nothing but trouble.

Get that reporter out of here.

-We don't want a lady here.

-Mr. Harding?

This is no place for you all to be.

I understand your concerns,

but this isn't the way to do it.

Give me that thing.

You people get this

through your heads.

This is not your land.

This is my land.

You signed a lease!

What I do with my land is my business.

Get out of here, or I'll have you

arrested for trespassing.

It's you who should be arrested,

Jack Harding.

Your business is killing our people!

No more dumping! No more killing!

Cool. Indians!

Get in there. Start the trucks up.

What's going on?

I don't know, but it looks bad.

Hey, that's my daughter! Jo?

No more dumping! No more killing!

Keep moving! Keep moving!

Grandpa, let's go.

Jack, call your boys off.

Let me handle this.

Shut up.

All right, Ron. Dump it!

Get back in there.

Tum Tum.

-Morning, Grandpa.

-Morning, Rocky.

-Morning, Grandpa.

-Good morning, Colt.

Tum Tum!

I'm coming! I'm coming!

There's no food in the refrigerator,


Pizza! Pizza!

-I won't get any gas.

-Just get pepperoni.

I'm not gonna get any fishes

on my pizza, okay?

All right.

First one in gets to order.

Hey, wait up!

Hurry up, Grandpa.

You go on ahead. I'm gonna get

some groceries.


-Pick up number 13.


Pick up number 1 4.

That's us.

Well, go get it.

Pick up number 15.

Well, well.

Lookie here what the wind

dragged in again.

I told you to stop

following us around.

Where's my father?

What did you do to him?

I don't know what

you're talking about.

Don't do that.

Wait. No, no, this ain't right.

She's just a little girl.

-She's too young for beer.

-Let go of me!

Why, you little--

What? Anybody got a problem

with that?

I said, anybody got a problem

with that?

Yeah, I got a problem.

Let me guess.

You were too short for the good rides

at the carnival.

What's so funny about that?

Why don't you buttheads just

leave her alone?

What did you say, punk?

-I said, leave her alone.


Come here, you little brats.

I'm gonna have to teach you

some manners.

Isn't it sad? Some kids

just won't learn, will they?

Get them!

Thank you.

Kid! Now you're gonna get it!

Boy, this pizza's boss!

Can't you see I'm trying to eat here?

Look out!

May l?

I can't see! My eyes!

I wouldn't touch that.

Dude, who taught you how to walk?

Colt! Don't!

Colt, what the--

Colt! Stop it!

Tum Tum!


My pizza!

-Don't fight.

-I'm not fighting.

-What are you doing?

-Kicking butt.

Well, stop it.

I'll handle this.

Shouldn't play with knives.

It's a bad example.

You're right. Bad example.

Get those kids!

I'll get you for this!

You're great!

Where'd you learn it?

Our grandfather taught us.

-Can you teach us?

-ls it hard to learn?


-Yeah, it's hard.

What are your names?

He's Rocky, he's Colt,

and I'm Tum Tum.

They're ninja names.

You're ninjas?

I thought ninjas were bad guys.

There's good ones and bad ones.

Yeah, like dentists.

Grandpa, over here!

Did you see us cream those guys?

We're leaving.

But I haven't had my pizza yet!


Yes, I understand.

That's a good idea.

The boys will be down there

first thing in the morning.

You're welcome.

You'll have to pay for the damages

to the pizza parlour.


-They started it.

That's beside the point.

Let it be--

A lesson to us.

So you want to be heroes, do you?

-Maybe I'll stop your ninja lessons.


-You said we should help people.

-I did.

But that's not what I'm worried about.

You're getting too cocky.

Sit down!


You're helping others

so you can become heroes.

That's not helping them,

that's helping yourselves.

It's a lie.

Now this.

This is what I meant by the correct

path of a ninja.


See these beautiful flowers?

Learn to be like them.

You mean stand in dirt and smell good?

Very funny.

Listen to the sound of the flower.

It could teach you how to walk

the correct path.

Do they speak English?

Listen to them.

Hear the sound of

the flowers blooming.

Only then can you become a true ninja.

Why not tell us?

I could teach you many things.

But some things

you have to learn by yourself.

Colt! Let me out!

Other one.

Hi, guys.


-I'm Jo.

I'm filthy. I mean, Rocky.

Hi, filthy Rocky.



Your grandfather told me

you were here.

You're doing this because of me?

No, it's ninja training.

You were something else yesterday.

I can't believe you're ninjas.

I know. We look more like

garbage ninjas today.

Can I help?

Thanks for sticking up for me


It was nothing.

-Who were they?

-Why were you following them?

You really want to know?

Believe it or not,

it all has to do with garbage.

This is really ruining my appetite.

-Those guys kidnapped your father?

-I know they did.

Nobody believes me, though.

Everybody thinks he's on a business

trip. That's what the mayor says.

-The mayor?

-Yeah. My father works for him.

The day before my dad disappeared

he told me...

...and Mom he found a secret at

the mayor's office about the landfill.

What secret?

I don't know exactly...

...but he said it would make them

close the landfill.

They throw lots of stuff in there.

Not just trash.

They're killing the land.

And without land, there's no life.

As for man, his days are

as the grass.

As a flower in a field,

he flourishes...

...then gone.

But the eternal life lies

in our souls...

...and it is these shining souls...

...that go on to God. Amen.

So, what do we do now?

What can we do? We've done

everything we could.

Obviously, we didn't.

People are still dying!

How many more are we going to bury?

If I can just find my father,

all the problems will be solved.

Our people will stop dying.

We'll help find your father.

-You will?

-Yeah, we will.

Your father's been missing a week?

Where do we start looking, guys?

How about the cops?

My mom and I tried the police,

but they wouldn't listen.

We gotta start looking somewhere.

How about there?

-Come on.

-Where are we going?

-Jo, can you watch our bikes?


Jack, we got a little problem.

Jack, take it easy.

Don't have another heart attack.

Those lndians are causing trouble.

They've got a table set up

in town for signatures.

Okay, Jack.

We'll be right over.

-We'll get them, J.J.

-Shut up.

What did Jack have to say?

Do I ever tell you guys

what Jack has to say?


-Come on, get out.
