If you're a slum kid you've got to be tough to survive, and Kenny is tough-on the surface. But his adolescence is a desperate struggle against a growing physical affliction. He suffers the nightmare of rejection, even by his 'hero' Dan, who has his own torments, a shameful obsession indulged only behind locked doors and with a girl friend who is a prostitute.

It is these dark secrets that lead to Kenny's final solitary act of horrifying destruction.
