Jamie is fifteen - and he's as bald as the monkey he is looking after at the local animal lab. The drug company he is working for say the monkey is helping them to find a cure for his baldness. Jamie's sister says the animal experiments are wrong - and she's going to stop them. Who is right? And what will Jamie do when he is forced to decide?
