Jack is one of the sporty boys, always after a new game to play, particularly one that allows him to tackle without getting caught. He and his friends invent You Play, You Pay, and things don't end well. When Jack, in pain and keen not to get in trouble, says it was Fadi's fault, he almost immediately regrets it, but can't take it back. Things go from bad to worse as Fadi gets into more trouble and Jack feels more and more guilty.
