    Karl describes his childhood, where he is kept in a shed in the back, isolated from his family. There are times that he attends school, but the other children are mean to him, so he only goes time to time. While Karl is explaining about his childhood, it becomes apparent to the viewer that Karl has not developed at a normal pace, and that Erikson’s first psychosocial stage, Trust vs. Mistrust, has never really been established.

Karl was cast out to the shed, where he slept in a hole that he had dug in the ground.…
