A teenage boy is forcefully taken from his home in the middle of the night by his parents consent, to a harsh reform facility. There is no contact with the outside world and the retired war colonel in charge prides himself on breaking an inmates spirit to correct delinquent behaviour. A power struggle between troubled kids and troubled adults who know no other form of control than fear and violence. A power drama with a naturalistic and strong lead performance and attractive cinematography.
