Synopsis

Based on actual events, six teenage boys attempt to come to grips with their mutual abuse childhoods by becoming self-styled vigilantes. Confused and conflicted by their common pasts as the victims of pedophelia, the boys band together, pose as rent boys, and then beat up and rob their gay customers. Only Stu, who's found a mentor of sorts in the kindly chef he works for, challenges this misguided approach, but he is nevertheless drawn into their plan to avenge the actual agents of their psychological suffering.
