An intense and powerful psychological thriller about a teenage boy trying to hide his psychopathic desires while falling in love for the first time. This edgy, cinematic drama is a haunting exploration of the mind of a 16-year-old boy on the brink of adulthood and of the fears of his single mother Jenny, who’s keeping a traumatic secret from him. Sam is embarking on his first romance with fellow teenager Chrissy – she’s just moved to the area with her father after family turmoil of her own. But things are about to take a much darker turn. Beneath the surface of his charismatic persona, Sam is experiencing more than the usual teenage angst – he’s feeling a psychopathic urge to kill. His family and friends have no idea what he is capable of. Only his victims know the chilling truth. And they’re not talking any more.
