Drama. Mrs Nielsen is the protective mother of a young man who is autistic. One evening he returns late from his usual walk. The next morning, Mrs Nielsen hears that the body of a young girl has been found in a park nearby, and immediately begins to suspect that her boy may be responsible. A wily detective also suspects him and makes a point of calling at the Nielsen house to ask the boy, Brian, the same questions persistently, despite the best efforts of Mrs Nielsen to 'coach' the boy in the best answers to give.
