This raw, coming-of-age story captures a musical savant, Josiah Greene, driven to self-injury for quietude. Finally free of an abusive past, but unable to obtain affection of Maya, cashier at the local Mercado, Josiah faces an onslaught of predators, including the Jesus grafittied on the side of his apartment.
University student, Josiah Greene, has a secret. He’s a musical savant. His was the music on the radio ten years ago, but because of his abusive father and exploitive mother he developed self-injurious practices to repress his music. Finally free to make his own decisions, he obsessively seeks affection from Maya, cashier at the local super Mercado. Her beauty elicits the music he hates.
When Josiah uncovers Maya’s bruise, he vows to rescue her, no matter the cost. But under the glower of Jesus, enshrined on the side of his apartment building, Josiah’s plans disintegrate and his inner-beast becomes uncontrollable. Can he silence his urges in time to save Maya?
