Nine-year-old Benni is labelled a 'system crasher' due to her psychotic episodes and aggressive nature caused by an unknown trauma. Too young for a closed institution and too aggressive for foster care, the child seems to be a lost cause. But her mentor is not ready to give up on her and takes Benni along with him and his family to a cabin in the woods. Will Benni's volatile nature finally straighten itself out?
