An example of a fiction synopsis: "The way, the way back".

The 14-year-old DUNCAN sits in a estate car that is being drove by his mum' s friendĀ TTRENT. Trento issues where Duncan would range on a 1 to 10 ranks, and advises loudly that the kid is a 3 Although Duncan says nothing, the unfriendly comment offends him deep. Together with Duncan's mom, PAM, the group arrive in a seaside home on the east coast.

Whilst the situation is ideal for Trent and Pam, Duncan is horribly out of place and wants to be with his sire. Duncan is lonely in the city because his mom is often out with new mates. Ill with the grown-up farces, Duncan excavates a bicycle and begins to explore the city to finally discover Wizz, a small aquatic area.

Joyous man-childowl, who owns the farm, goes to clumsy Duncan and gives him a position. It is Duncan who is accepting and starts working in secret in the garden without even informing anyone. When Duncan met the excentric staff of the parks, he began to build up self-confidence, which even earned him the epithet "Pop & Lock" after the music.

Wizz becomes Duncan's day-to-day getaway, and he goes to Owen as a paternal character and tries to recruit Susanna at the same time. In the course of the summers, Pam and Duncan face each other and say that he is never in the home and is remote. The same accusation Duncan is making. The suspense in the home increases and gets even bigger when Duncan sees a neighbor kiss ( "Trent" is silent about it) one saturday.

Pam later caught Trent in a falsehood that revealed his love affair. Mm-hmm. I think it'?s time Trent and Trent gets pushed by him. They are separated, and Trent tells Trent that he had to stay on the shore this past year because his divorcee dad didn't want him. Late that evening he hears that his mom will take Trent back, and nothing will be--

She is nice to him but surprised when he tries to give her a good time. Disappointed, he goes to Water Wizz and goes to an employees' bash before staying the night. 2. Duncan opens up to Owen in the mornings to explain how the playground is the only place where he is lucky.

He sympathises and says that his relation to his dad has resulted in him no longer liking them. I have Owen to thank for everything. and apologises for the disappearance, but the damages in the last 24 hour are too great. Now Pam decided that the group should vacate the home and come home early to prevent further wars.

When the unpleasant journey home begins, Duncan gets out of the estate and rushes to the near-by Wizz, where he faces an astonishing waterslide challange that the staff considered inaccessible. So Susanna and DUN CAN start kissing. Although Pam brings back Pamun Duncan to the vehicle, he is happy and closed up about the sun.

When the journey home begins again, Pam pulls from the front (at Trent) to the back (at Duncan) and makes clear who is most important in her live, and also indicates that she could still be leaving Trent.
