A teenage boy kills his girlfriend's backward brother, and ends up in juvenile detention. There, he meets a teacher and wanna-be writer with some issues of his own. The teacher tries to find out why the boy committed the murder, which leads to some interesting philosophical debates. The murder also had a dramatic effect on his girlfriend's family.
