Eight year old Krame is known as the "thinker" to his gang because he's always the ones to plot their pranks so they don't get caught. At home there's no getting away with anything. Krame's father is an alcoholic who beats him mercilessly, locks him away, forces him to stand at attention for hours and is deprived of food and water. His mentally ill mother is also an alcoholic and fails to give her son any scrap of emotional support. Things go on like this until tragedy strikes.
