When a fatherless paperboy in a 1960s small town discovers a beloved customer brutally murdered, he embarks on a mission to identify her killer, only to find all signs pointing to the one person he can't challenge—the town’s chief of police.  With timeless themes of identity, rebellion and, ultimately, survival, The Pocketknife is a coming-of-age thriller about one boy's quest to do the right thing at all costs and the shocking revelations he uncovers along the way.
