Trust Goes Both Ways…

Oscar Walden is having a bad day… a rough life patch.

Unable to cope with his imploding family life, Oscar arrives on a call out as a volunteer Appropriate Adult. Here, Oscar crosses paths with troubled teenage detainee, Jordan Tempest, who, despite Oscar’s vain attempts to connect with Jordan and help him through his arrest, is soon running circles around him.

Off kilter and with emotions running high, can Oscar find a way to get through to Jordan or is it futile?
