Based on true events, Paul (Michael Socha) is forced to recall his harrowing childhood growing up in a children’s home, when a police investigation into his boyhood friend’s suicide opens old wounds. As Paul struggles to shake off his past and build a relationship with Anthea (Zoë Tapper), his fragile mental state and bitter memories lead to a confrontation with those responsible for his shattered childhood and the death of his friend.
