Patrice Toye wasn't afraid to rub some viewers the wrong way with risky and taboo subject matter, namely paedophilia. Based on the book by the same name, Tench throws a torn, gentle youth into the spotlight. Jonathan has just returned to his mother's home after having served a prison sentence for an unknown crime. Determined to leave his crimes in the past, Jonathan focuses on rebuilding his life and moving on. These good intentions are quickly put to the test when a mother and young daughter move into the house next door.
