“Sometimes I feel like I have walked into the middle of a movie. Maybe I can make my own movie. The film will be the story of my life. No, not my life, but of this experience. I’ll call it what the lady who is the prosecutor called me … Monster.”
A robbery takes place, a shopkeeper is killed and a teenager finds himself on trial for murder. But Steve Harmon is convinced he is innocent. The only way he copes is to tell his story like a film. But is his story reliable? Is he really as innocent as he claims or is he just a teenage menace?
