Bobby Trask is a 12-year-old kid in a bad place. His father is an abusive drunk with muddled religious views, and his mother, as hard as she tries to defend her son, only ever ends up delaying the inevitable. Things take a turn for the worse one Friday when Bobby brings home a black eye from school.
The following day his father brings him out into the woods on a mission to do "God's Work" and bring him into adulthood. A dark coming-of-age story about the sins of a father and a boy's chance to absolve himself from them.
