Christopher is nine. His mother doesn’t love him and he doesn’t know his father. Upon returning to boarding school for the summer term of swimming and cricket, several members of staff notice his unhappiness and become involved in his life. At school he finds the security missing at home and begins to blossom – until the day of the school concert. A near-fatal accident reveals the cause of Christopher’s earlier unhappiness and the school tries to intervene but events move rapidly, until it seems that nothing will prevent tragedy overtaking not only the boy but also those most closely concerned with the care of him.
