A boy at a suburban playground: still a child through and through, he indulges in naive animism, talking to stones, to toys, to plants. A boy and his big brother, who prepares him for the schoolyard because his mother isn’t up to the task. A boy in a gymnasium: actually the star player, the captain of his team, but also the victim of sexual abuse. The boys and the juvenile detention facility: they all have lovable faces; they’ve all done something. But what happened to them before this, and what’s happening to them now? A young man in a pub, on the one hand reminiscing and on the other anticipating what might come. He, too, was once a boy, and he, too, needs a new outlook.
