I was definitely surprised!

The crime: 4 boys enter a home. A robbery is committed. The homeowner defends his property and shoots and kills one of the boys. And since they were there to commit a felony, all of the surviving boys were charged with the murder. Only one went away for life.

The justice: the boy serving time wasn't actually part of the crime and was a pawn. It's time for those who took part in his punishment to feel some of that themselves.

My verdict: at first, I thought it was something like Saw. No joke. I'm still not sure if I'm disappointed that it wasn't. There were enough mind games and deceptions to make this exciting and I was glad that I couldn't guess what was really happening or predict what was next. I recommend this short read to anyone looking for a quick thrill.
