THE KID is a story of a young aspiring poet at the age of twelve, who because of harsh circumstances in his life; a mother who passed away and his father, a mechanic, still struggling to come to terms with it, is forced to grow up too fast. He finds his family in a group of kids much older than he is and is thrown into a world of alcohol, drugs, parties and girls. 

Much wiser than his years and almost everyone around him, Frankie literally sees himself as a man when he’s alone, while the rest of the world simply sees him as just a kid, except for one nineteen year old girl named Charlie.
