Seventeen year-old Asher has always been a wild troublemaker. It’s hard for him to concentrate in class and his temper is short. Yet, at times, glimpses of a street-smart charmer and surprisingly good guy sneak through.

While his strict and demanding father sees him as a natural successor to the family’s scaffolding business, Asher finds a different sort of role model in Rami—a teacher whose class assignments inspire him to forge a new identity. When an unexpected tragedy occurs, however, Asher crosses a line of no return.
