Storyline

Somewhere in a common and peaceful neighbourhood, a troubled teenage boy suffocates under the burden of alienation, abuse and indifference in his dysfunctional family. From a distance, his next-door neighbour peeks into the boy's house, trying to decipher the situation and his predicament. He seems concerned, however, is it because of the boy's lustful mother and his guilty imagination? Written by Nick Riganas
