When the grandfather of 13-year-old Jake dies, his family moves back to their old home in Brooklyn (New York). Jake makes friends with Tony, whose single mother runs the shop downstairs. As their friendship intensifies, their families become embroiled in an ongoing row about the rent. The boys come up with an unusual response to the adults’ behaviour: a pact of silence.
