His only friend is Sophia, a young girl his own age who he soon learns is the victim of abuse herself. When Sophia's 16-year-old brother, Ivan, reveals a secret, forbidden interest in Paul and begins to coerce Paul into intimate acts, Paul is cast into confusion as what to feel. Ivan never hurts him and even displays affection for him, yet when around their fathers and the other adult men, he is critical of Paul. Sophia exhibits unexpected care for her abusive brother that Paul doesn't entirely understand until he learns that Ivan is as much of a victim as Sophia and Paul.
