Theo (Matt Edwards) has recently received a criminal conviction for stealing the Surf Club Polaris, and part of his sentencing includes doing community service. He dutifully shows up for his first day, with Justin (James Stewart) there to see him off like an overprotective parent.
One of the group members, a young woman, recognizes Theo as a newcomer almost away and pushes him to test the boundaries during the session. Theo, on the other hand, isn’t interested and only wants to make amends. This simply motivates the woman to work even harder to deceive Theo.
When Theo realizes he hasn’t received his community service documentation, Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) investigates and discovers that his address hasn’t been updated, resulting in the material being sent to his parents’ house. Theo is shocked and tells John (Shane Withington) that he needs to call someone. John, on the other hand, is adamant that community service is not the time to be on your phone.

He pulls Theo to one side for a heart to heart and Theo cautiously reveals some details from his past. Dimitri was a hard taskmaster and he regularly got beaten up by his father. John is horrified and says Theo has to go to the police, but Theo furiously refuses, saying John has to keep Dimitri’s abuse a secret…
