After 12 years in jail,
Walter is released back into community. His

him. He tries to keep his urges under control. A one-night stand with a
co-worker breaks him out of his self-imposed exile, and he reveals his troubled
history. Then Walter meets Robin. She’s 11 years old. Will he let history repeat?
