At the age of ten, Billy was kidnapped by his natural father from the adoptive family he had grown up in. Six years later, after being arrested in a minor bar brawl, Billy is returned to his adoptive family. Torn once again from the world he has come to know, Billy is forced to confront the painful memories of his ordeal. Why are they doing this? How can they just interrupt his whole life - again? They never really wanted him - they hadn't even tried to find him, had they?
