' Behind the noise ' builds, through brief episodes, the possible childhood of a special child.
Billy has nightmares and hallucinations . He imagines animals on the walls chasing him down long corridors, or a tiny green deer on a hunting day with his father. Sometimes his overflowing imagination will lead him to isolate himself from his surroundings. His refuge will be literature, often he will simply wander around alone.
At twelve years old, Billy writes the Autobiography of a Wolf, at the same time that he is introduced to an increasingly strange world. And he also has a gun. One day Billy will become William Burroughs .
