Synopsis “Twenty-five-year-old Leyton has a closed world and two friends: Michael, a real-estate agent, and Robbie, a retail clerk and Michael’s girlfriend. Concerned about Leyton’s isolation and erratic behaviour, Robbie tries to coax him into coming with her to a career seminar. But her coaxing only serves to dig up the painful complications of their past relationship. To make matters worse, Leyton learns the house he has lived in all his life is going to be demolished. The thought of leaving the only place that is safe in an unsafe world forces Leyton to the end of his emotional tether. He believes he must take dramatic action to save his soul.
