When a high school baseball player is hospitalized after a nasty prank, the gang responsible decides to stay quiet about the accident and proceed with daily life, unscathed. This solution doesn’t sit well with the paranoid newcomer of the group. The combination of unwavering paranoia and an open police investigation prompt the newbie to spill the beans about the accident, but the gang’s alpha male is willing to curb all rationale to keep it buried.
