Will is the eldest son of a fatherless Plymouth Brethren family.

The Brethren regard themselves as God's 'chosen ones' and their strict moral code means that Will has never been allowed to listen to music or watch TV.

One day he finds himself caught up in the extraordinary world of Lee Carter, the school terror and maker of bizarre home movies.

Carter exposes Will to a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood and from that moment Will's mind is blown wide open and he's easily convinced to be the stuntman in Lee Carters' diabolical home movie.
