Totally gripping as it slowly reveals the truth, this story, told in the two voices of brother and sister Will and Ashley, is a dark story of teenage destruction. Caught up on the fallout from their mother’s alcoholism and their father’s desertion, Will and Ashley struggle to cope. They must depend on each other. But, can Ashley trust Will and does she know what he is capable of doing?
Will: How many times do I have to say it? Yes, I see the picture. It's a body, obviously. It's a dead body. Asheley: You have to understand, I love my brother. I'm scared of him too, but ...regardless of what he has or hasn't done, I feel for him, you know. Will: I don't care what happens to me, really, I don't. But Asheley ...she had nothing to do with any of this. Asheley: It's not like it sounds. He had a good heart. He trusted me. And I always did the best I could to help him. Will: It's not her fault. None of it. Okay then. The guy in the photo. I killed him ...but I had to. I had no choice. Why? That's complicated. That'll take a while.
