Natalie is beautiful, intelligent and motivated. She has her final exams coming up, naturally with perfect marks. She has her life under control. Everthing that Natalie approaches becomes a success. Apart from chemistry. And here she is to be helped by Keith, a new schoolmate. She does not like this at all. Keith dresses strangely. He is impulsive and rebellious. But she is most disturbed by the fact that he shows so little interest in her. Natalie does not have any choice if she wants to obtain a good mark in chemistry. But Keith requires return favours for his assistance. He lures her into his pickup truck at night. Once they distribute bowling balls in front of houses. Another time they lie on the platform. While the car is rolling down a slope, they gamble over who keeps calm longest before pulling the emergency brake. Or they philosophise on the status quo of life. While Natalie’s head thinks to have everything, especially Keith, under control, her heart has its own views. Then Keith suddenly disappears. Natalie is shocked. Only now does she realize she does not know anything at all about him. In the course of her investigations she discovers Keith’ secret.
