How dull would life be, if you had no memories of a childhood? Ernest Chapel is such a person, and he tells of the woes of his kind of amnesia. Though he has begun to make a new life, Ernest would really like to discover his real home. The home where those lost childhood memories are locked up in.
As he wraps up work at the end of a long day, a kid enters his locked door. At home, Ernest tries to tell his nagging wife about the strange boy. The kid invades his dreams, as Ernest wonders and worries over him.
With more late days, and thoughts of the kid, he shows up again a few days later. Who is Jeffery, and why is he so familiar… like a brother or something. The kid has a knack with locked doors, helpful for a locksmith like Ernest. But will temptation lead to some unethical behavior? How far down the trail of childish advice from Jeffery will Ernest go? Will he get his memory back, and what will it mean for him if he does?
