Fourteen-year-old Brian, distraught with pain after a shooting leaves his friend dead, embarks on a dark and hollow lifestyle, guided by the duplicitous Jessie. A turn of events “coincidentally” ends that relationship and thrusts him into another with a quirky family who becomes the center of Brian’s life. Sleeping gifts emerge from within and plunge him into a reality few could imagine.
