A fourteen year-old boy who is neglected by his father and disregarded by his decadent mother begins to experience a remarkable transformation in director Svend Wam's haunting drama. When things around the house begin to grow dire, dejected adolescent Lakki begins spending most of his time on the streets. Unfortunately for Lakki the streets are no more kind than home, and it isn't long before he is being brutalized by a vicious punk rocker. When feathers inexplicably begin sprouting out of Lakki's back, the miraculous event compels the frightened youngster to fight for his life.
