The weekend was dark and grim for the Wagger family. They were all too familiar with the demon that pounded away at their father. He was on a tirade, and they were his victims. They were no strangers to the pattern: the drinking, the beatings, and the verbal abuse! However, this weekend was different. The days were long and the nights too short. There was no time to prepare for the next round. When Walter was home, the sounds of pain and terror echoed through the halls. When he was gone, the fear of his return was agonizing to everyone. Plans had been laid! This time the children were awakened from a different sound - the sound of Walter dying from a single gunshot wound. Who was responsible? Who pulled the trigger? This weekend was destined to be the finale, as the sounds of abuse turned to silence.
