Jack is five years old, and Room is his world. Literally. They eat, sleep, exercise and live in one 11 x 11 room. He sleeps in the wardrobe, at night, when Old Nick comes to visit. Everything that Jack sees on television is pretend, from Dora the Explorer to airplanes and grass and trees.

To Jack's mother, room is the prison, where she has been kept against her will for seven years. But, now that Jack is five, she knows that they must get out.
