When John returns home to his father after serving time in prison, he is looking forward to start his life all over. However in the local community, his crime is nor forgiven neither forgotten. John’s presence brings out the worst in everyone surrounding him and a lynch-like atmosphere slowly takes shape. Feeling abandoned by his former friends and the people he loves, John loses hope and the same aggressions that previously sent him to prison start building up again. Unable to leave the past behind, he decides to confront it.
