Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This disturbing tale is as intensely dark and twisted as the relationship between the psychotic boy and the neglectful, mentally unstable mother it chronicles. The story opens as 12-year-old Danny Love holds a gun to his mother Candice's head. The events that led him there provide the bulk of the film. Molested by a Vietnam Vet and ignored by his mother, the boy seems to have a boundless well-spring of hatred. Following the child abuse, he becomes increasingly strange and evil, forcing Candice to send him to a mental hospital. There things only get worse as he causes even more trouble for his fellow inmates, the staff and himself.
