This is the sad (even tragic) story of a lonely, alienated teenager. His parents are divorced, and he moves between the two of them and stays at his grandmother's house. Neither parent has much time for him, and the grandmother, though loving, smothers. One day, when he is especially lonely, he tries to reach out to each of them in turn and is rebuffed or ignored. When he returns to his grandmother's house, his life takes a tragic turn.
