Plot Summary
Teen boy Barret (Robert DiPatri) and his mother (Patricia DiPatri) relocate in an effort to start their lives anew after Barret's father dies. Although the transition is rough, Barret finds a friend in Ryan (Eion Bailey), an outcast who doesn't mind hanging out with the new kid at school. Ryan is prone to emotional instability, though, and when Barret is accepted by others in the student body, the jealous Ryan starts to turn on his one pal -- first with words, then with shockingly violent acts.
