This film tells the story of Andrew, a lonely ten year old, who for the love of his younger brother Miles, is constantly taking blame for things he didn’t do. Their father is a consul and they have everything materially children could want, but they no longer have a mother. Andrew is forced to face his mother’s death with the added burden of keeping it a secret from Miles. The situation becomes distorted and misunderstood until one day an innocent game of the two brothers turn into tragedy.
