Chris's strong-willed and independent grandmother begins to annoy everyone around her almost immediately. Although well-meaning, she interferes relentlessly with everything. Chris's mother in particular has very little patience for her. Both children become concerned when their grandma confides to them that their mother has been physically assaulting her. Initially denied by their mother, matters come to a head when the two children actually witness an attack.
Seeing what was once a stable family life slowly collapsing before their eyes, Chris and his sister try to protect their grandmother and even put out a small fire, again caused by a discarded cigarette. With his grandmother's room smoke-damaged, Chris would have to give up his own bedroom and move out of the family home and stay with his friend Mark.
Following a number of therapy sessions, the root cause of Georgia's aggression towards her mother is revealed. Namely, that she herself was abused and beaten by Charlotte when she was a child. However, with this discovery uncovered, the future still remains bleak for the Benfield family because Georgia, now the mother herself, is beginning to harbor feelings of hate and anger towards her own child, Chris. As a matter of urgency, Georgia must now, with the help of her therapist, learn to suppress these feelings before Chris, a particularly strong young man, is also drawn into this circle of abuse and mistreatment with disastrous consequences for all.
