Trama: Il dodicenne Danny è figlio di una coppia di genitori separatisi alcuni anni prima. Susan, la madre di Danny, decide di sposarsi con il benestante e ammirato Rick. Il ragazzo non prova simpatia per l'uomo, ma Frank, suo padre, con il quale il fanciullo ha un ottimo rapporto, lo convince a dargli una chance. Durante la celebrazione del matrimonio, Frank nota che l'arrivo improvviso di un uomo scuote la sicurezza ostentata da Rick. L'uomo è Ray Coleman, vecchio socio d'affari del patrigno. Col passare dei giorni i rapporti tra Danny e il patrigno non migliorano, anzi degenerano quando, per caso, una sera, Danny assiste all'omicidio di Coleman da parte del patrigno. Non creduto né dalla polizia, né dal padre (anche perché Rick ha occultato il cadavere bruciandolo in un forno per cuocere mattoni), Danny si sente minacciato dalla presenza di Rick che non esita a intimorirlo per mantenere il suo silenzio. Frank, intanto, inizia ad indagare su Rick, visto che la polizia ha di fatto archiviato il caso, e scopre che era complice di Ray Coleman in un caso di estorsione e tentato omicidio. Mentre tenta di mettersi in contatto con la polizia, Rick sopraggiunge nella fabbrica di barche di sua proprietà e, dopo una colluttazione, appicca un incendio con l'intenzione di ucciderlo. Scampato miracolosamente al fuoco, contattata Susan - la quale ha capito tutto perché ha notato che Rick, tornato a casa, si è medicato un principio di ustione - Frank raggiunge Rick e ingaggia un furioso corpo a corpo con lui, a seguito del quale, grazie anche all'intervento risolutore di Danny, il malvivente muore folgorato
