    Hashi is a high school student struggling to maintain his equilibrium in the wake of his friend's sudden suicide. As his alienation and anxiety grow and he dreams of leaving town, he acts out by stealing from work and classmates. When another friend is brutally attacked at a party and the other students discover he has been stealing from them, Hashi recedes further inward. His fear of violence materializes as hallucinations that blur the line between reality and imagination, and he is forced to choose between fighting back and becoming his own nightmare or saving himself by leaving behind everything he knows.
