Ben, a sensitve and small 11-year-old, faces bullying at school and neglect at home. His mother can barely cope with her own problems and is completely insensitive to those of her son. Ben becomes deeply traumatised when an associate of his mother's locks him in an isolated warehouse overnight in an attempt to force her to work. Driven beyond endurance by the harsh adult world he lives in, the child finds a chilling resolution to his problems.
