Fiifi, a 12 Year old boy, finds himself caught between two opposing philosophies as he tries to understand and confront his society.

His grandfather a former activist, teaches him to always stand up for his rights and never cave in to the power which he believes has turned society into a dull, lethargic and apathetic lot.

However his mother Pat is weary of that kind of message which she fears will bring him trouble just like his grandfather, who has become a wretched old man. She entreats her son to learn the ways of his society by using it to meet his ends rather than going against it.

In the unfolding events Fiifi decides to evaluate these two philosophies.
