Teenage Milo must deal with the never-ending pressure on clarifying his own identity in the corridors of a psychiatric ward – yet he just longs to be himself, without any other care. The only unconditional support he feels is from his friend Nicki. But what happens when he overhears an unpleasant conversation of the supervisors and must deal with the consequences?
