It’s late summer and Robbie is waiting to discover if he’s been accepted into the Cadets, the army’s officer training unit, thereby fulfilling the hopes and dreams of Larry. Meanwhile, black sheep Kevin keeps on getting into trouble and is grounded by his demanding father. He manages to sneak away with Hanna and they find a wounded SPARROW with a broken wing. Kevin takes it back home promising to nurse it back to health. His life takes a fateful turn when he inadvertently causes an accidental death. Shocked and unable to confront what he’s done, Kevin does something seemingly unforgivable… he lies about what happened. Kevin then must watch in horror as the consequences of his lie unfold before his eyes; with the only living soul he is able to confess to being the sparrow he now keeps in a box in his room. Will he be forced to confront the truth as events inevitably escalate out of his control?
