Synopsis / Plot
Thriller in which a fifteen year old boy breaks into a chemist taking a policeman hostage. He then takes him to his eldest sister's in Montpellier to whom he has only ever spoken on the telephone. It becomes clear that this dramatic action is in fact a cry for help on the boy's part, who has been emotionally neglected since childhood. His sister sets about trying to amend this.
