When a 16-year-old outcast is bullied, he pleads with his parents to change schools, but his father tells him he needs to stand up for himself. While reading “The Waste Land” by T.S. Eliot, the poem’s meaning begins to distort his reality. Ignored and betrayed by those around him, he illegally purchases a gun to deal with the mounting pressures in his life.
