'I'd hear a song, and it would cause this utterly jolting and physical reaction inside of me. It would take me over, and it would take me somewhere else.'

Now that his mother has married psychotic nightclub owner Lee Howard, Danny is seeking escape in all the wrong places. Befriended by Howard's creepy sidekick Jack Freeman, he keeps his friends at bay for their own safety, and spends his days in a drug-induced haze, relying only on music to keep him going. When Anthony is released from prison, he vows to help Danny escape, and with help from drug dealer Jaime, he soon discovers the vile truth about both men. But will Anthony and Michael be able to help Danny, without putting their own lives at risk? Told from Howard's point of view as well as Danny's; what is it Howard really wants and will Danny ever be able to give it to him? A brutal and violent climax is on the cards when Danny and his friends make a bid for a new life...Howard is not about to let them go that easily...

A gritty and uncompromising drama with a life-affirming soundtrack...The story continues in The Boy With The Thorn In His Side Part 3
