Tom (Cunliffe), an alienated 15-year-old, forced to move away from his friends in London when his family relocates to rural Devon, struggles with the change and becomes an observer of the family. His mother (Swinton) is pregnant, his father (Winstone) is vocally abusive, and his 18 year old sister (Belmont) is sexually active. Troubled by his own emerging sexuality, the boy comes to suspect his father and sister have had an incestuous relationship. Isolated, confused and consumed by anger, Tom is determined to expose his family's dark secret before it destroys them all
