He finds himself cheated by an adult as well as a group of older children who are more savvy about street life.

Her strange mannerisms and increasingly odd behaviour becomes a concern to Nick, and soon he has her admitted to an institution as he believes that she poses a danger to herself. With Mabel committed and undergoing treatment for six months, Nick finds himself with the couple’s three children.
