Synopsis

Henry’s new family is heavenly by all outward appearances. But, it doesn’t take long before he earns a role as servant in the foster home. The couple that vowed to care for him, chastise Henry for his “demons”. While they’re away at church, their children find new and terrifying ways to torture the boy. In the darkness of the basement where he sleeps, he experiences disturbing nightmares that send him on a frantic search for someone named Charlie. Meanwhile, Charlie struggles through the monotony of his pathetic life; a hopeless job situation, a less than average girlfriend, and a longing for booze that won’t subside. After his girlfriend, Sarah, is murdered, his secret rendezvous with his ex-lover, Jenny, comes to light. Charlie’s creepy obsession with Jenny and his criminal past makes him the prime suspect. When Charlie’s paranoia gets the best of him, he makes a hasty decision to skip town. He finds himself face to face with dangerous pimps, drug pushers and junkies. Holding on to a shimmer of hope and the bread he squandered from the homeless shelter, Charlie squeezes through some of the nastiest slums in his fight for survival and freedom. But, it’s not long before Charlie comes face to face with a little boy that will change his life forever. With Charlie by his side, Henry climbs out of his abusive hell in foster care and, along the way, he reveals truths about Charlie’s past that are shocking and unnerving. Charlie’s dark and twisted reality turn out to be his ticket to innocence, but lands him in a prison that is far worse than he ever imagined…
