A man abused his wife and then, wracked with guilt and unable to confront his own actions, left her and the children, never to be seen or heard from again.
Fletcher, the eldest son, grows into a dysfunctional adult who resorts to abusing and emotionally manipulating those around him.
With no dad to raise him, and a mother who has only moments of clarity through a drug-induced haze, Fletcher lacks the guidance to deal with his problems effectively.
A sister who wants nothing more than to escape, but feels too helpless to leave, finds little solace in meeting up with friends who simply do not understand her.
We watch as Fletcher slowly spirals down the same path as his father, completely unaware that he is doing so. . .
