Synopsis

Based on the 1995 novel of the same name by Scott Heim, this haunting story of childhood sexual abuse follows two very different young men — one a smooth-talking hustler, the other a shy student obsessed with UFOs — as they cross paths years after a fateful night with their little league coach.
