Danny (Richard Pawulski), a teenager with autism, escapes the inner city for the beautiful countryside as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Little does he know, that bitter Nicholas (Danny Miller; Emmerdale) is hunting him, stemming from a lie created by the enamoured and envious Julia (Natalie Martins) and new boy Calvin (Reece Douglas; Waterloo Road). As the three close in on Danny, Nicholas’ behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and violent, Julia and Calvin must decide whether to go through with Nicholas’ deadly plan.
