Paul feels the need to help Louis and Tino save their tangerine trees. When Paul gets there, he sees the trees have been frozen by the family. Wayne explains that the water spray freezes and keeps the trees at 32 degrees: it is 31 degrees that kills the tree. They have to use diesel powered water pumps to spray the water. Paul finds purpose in helping his friends. Paul comes from a family that is rather self-centered and, in Erik's case, consumed with his own desires. Paul wants to be different.
