A couple’s fragile unity is threatened when they realise that their only child may be guilty of something awful. Anthony, recently diagnosed with schizophrenia, rips MISSING posters of a blonde girl from lampposts as he roams his town alone one night, while his mother worries at home.
The next day, the family dynamic becomes clear: the marital resentment is etched in John and Margaret’s strained conversation; and although John tries to amuse his son, it is not reciprocated, and Anthony leaves his father dismayed. While he is in town seeing a friend, whose existence is questioned by John, the parents discover that their friend’s daughter is missing. Against their will, they must decided whether Anthony could be capable of a heinous crime before he returns home.
