Status: Completed

When troubled teenager Eric is transferred to an adult prison, the new environment serves only to amplify his ultra-violent behaviour.

He soon comes to the attention of the prison kingpin, who assigns his lieutenant Nev to keep the boy under control. The problem however is that Nev is Eric’s father. They have not seen each other for twelve years and an uncomfortable stand off begins as father and son battle to gain some kind of understanding after years of mistrust and separation.

When the prison’s psychologist Oliver takes an interest in the boy, Eric begins a journey of transformation. But with lethal aggression only ever a heartbeat away, Eric’s life and chance for redemption are under constant threat.
