Jack comes out of the prison he spent 14 years of his life in for the murder of nine-year-old Angela Milton. As already a 24-year-old youth, he has little understanding of what is going on around him, so his mentor Terry teaches the young man to live anew.
The man helps the guy choose a new name, find housing and work and gives advice on what to do in a particular situation. Now Boy A’s name isn’t Eric Wilson, it’s Jack Beridge. He is a wounded and secretive youth, but even despite his modesty, the guy quickly finds friends in the face of his work colleagues and falls in love with Michelle’s girlfriend. Life seems to be starting to settle, just the thing is that Jack is still being tortured by memories of the past. He often thinks of his childhood friend – Philip, with whom they committed a terrible crime, and also learns that Philip committed suicide not long ago. It seems to Jack that this way the boy tried to say his “sorry” to the world. Also, the youngster is not even sure that his old friend took his own life.
Jack can not reveal his secret to anyone, as for any information about his location on the Internet is assigned a decent monetary reward, however all secret early or late becomes explicit.
