When the abusive elder brother of introverted seventh-grader Corey (Todd Fortune) steals the girl of his younger sibling's dreams, the betrayal ignites an insatiable bloodlust in filmmaker William Moroni's directorial debut. Nothing goes right for young Corey, but when Corey, his alcoholic step-mother, and his brutish step brother Biff move to a new town, a glimmer of hope comes into his life in the form of beautiful classmate Jackie. Spending every penny he has earned on a pair of concert tickets in hopes of convincing Jackie to join him, Corey's romantic plans are thoughtlessly thwarted when Biff steals both the tickets and Corey's love interest. With nothing to lose and the simmering rage bubbling violently to the surface, Corey attacks his older step-sibling and in the ensuing struggle Biff is accidentally killed. Fearful of the violent repercussions that will undoubtedly occur when his mother discovers his murderous deed, Corey flees the scene of the crime no longer able to control the beast that rages within.
