SNAP

by Carmel Winters

synopsis

Sandra struggles to piece together and defend what happened three years earlier, when her 15-year-old son snatched a toddler from the park and held him captive for five days in his grandfather's house. She has agreed to do this on camera - filmed, as we later discover, by the young man in question. But her son will use their shared ordeal to extract another story from his mother, one that goes a long way towards explaining what he did.
