What is The Goldfinch about?

Thirteen-year-old Theodore Decker's mother is killed in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In the aftermath of the bombing, Theo takes a painting after an older man tells him to, The Goldfinch, one of the few remaining paintings by Carel Fabritius, and hides it at his apartment. Theo is then placed with the Barbours, the family of his estranged friend Andy, as he has no other relatives in the city and his father has abandoned him.
Theo reconnects with Andy and becomes close to Andy's mother, Samantha Barbour, who encourages his interest in her antiques and art. After Samantha finds an engraved ring in Theo's possession, he goes to visit the shop where it came from, Hobart & Blackwell. The shop is run by James "Hobie" Hobart (Jeffrey Wright), whose deceased partner Welton "Welty" Blackwell (Robert Joy) died in the bombing and gave the ring to Theo to return. Welty's niece, Pippa, was also at the museum and survived the bombing. Hobie allows Theo to visit Pippa, who has serious injuries, and the two bond. Theo begins to visit Hobie regularly, even after Pippa leaves to live with her aunt in Texas.
Theo begins to settle into life with the Barbours and is invited to go on vacation with them as Andy is hinting that his parents are considering adopting him. Before they can, Theo's estranged and alcoholic father, Larry, newly detoxed, and his girlfriend Xandra (Sarah Paulson) arrive to reclaim Theo and relocate him to Las Vegas. One of the few items he takes with him is The Goldfinch painting.
Theo makes a friend, Boris (Finn Wolfhard), a Ukrainian immigrant whose father is physically abusive. Boris, who has also lost his mother, introduces Theo to drugs and alcohol. Theo's father, sliding further into alcoholism and gambling, dies in a car accident. Theo decides to return to New York and promises to take care of Xandra's dog, Popper, for her. Theo begs Boris to come with him and Boris promises he will follow Theo, but never does. Theo goes to Hobie, who allows him to live with him.
