12-year-old Michael, as the people around are used to, walks alone on the street. He is widely known as 'Jack's son' and he regularly has to deal with classmates, neighbouring children and even with almost all adults. Everyone scold him and wants to face his face.
Bullying is central to the life of Michael, Jack's son. However, today it goes beyond normal. Today is a real thriller day for Michael .
Michael meets his friends
Michael has followers
Just before he gets to the corner, he can't control himself anymore. He looks back skittish. Just one short look back. Right at that moment De Vink jumps for him. De Vink has a balaclava on, but Michael immediately recognizes him by his small but sturdy posture. With his knife in his right hand, he threatens to stick on Michael. Michael knows he can't go any way, because when he looked back, he already saw his three friends following him. He knows that he's gonna get a big beating again and start crying. And those tears are exactly what his friends are looking for. With that, they know that they have him in their power.
In the flat
Robbie grabs Michael firmly by his right arm. Albert pushes a clot of toilet paper into his mouth and cords his mouth with a gray cloth. Sammy walks in front of them to the entrance to the barns of the nearest flat. Michael knows that any wrong move will give him a knife stab. That's why he walks willingly.
Robbie takes the gray cloth off his mouth. Just when Michael wants to take a breath of relief and start shouting, he gets a right direct from De Vink. No ordinary blow, but with a baseball bat. It won't take a second before Michael hangs unconscious on the lattice.
The unconscious Michael is brought to their apartment by his four kidnappers. This one is on the 14th floor of the building, where they are located. In a small inner chamber, he is laid tied on the bare, cold concrete floor.
The Finch regularly kicks Michael in the side and in the head. The steel noses of his boots do their crushing work thoroughly. If Michael rejoins slowly hours later, the blood still flows out of his many wounds. The gray concrete in the room slowly begins to acquire a red glow.
Slowly it penetrates to Michael that this thriller was just a film in his own head. All the harassment he faces day in and day out, bear their painful fruit in these nightmares. He is glad that his father woke him up, but he remains afraid of what the new day will bring him.
