Starving for acceptance and exceptionally sly, Brennan rents a room from the Henderson family under false fronts. He uses his conciliatory skills to ingratiate himself with each particular family member before Mike returns from college. As Brennan’s tactic becomes progressively destructive, psyches and driven to the breaking point and violence results.
