Twenty-four-year-old hairdresser Torie Sullivan has destroyed her life. When her boyfriend betrays her, she careens her car into a ditch in a drunken fury.
After paramedic Adam Benedict rescues Torie from her mangled car, he learns she’s the middle school bully who brutalized him. A week later, he discovers she lives in a lean-to in Hookskill Nature Preserve. Despite his hatred, his innate compassion won’t allow him to leave Torie in the wilds. He offers her a room in his miniscule cabin.
After tragedy strikes Adam’s life, his girlfriend, Maya Vitale takes Torie in. She, too, hides a dark secret.
The lives of three disparate friends collide and intermingle forcing their toxic pasts to ferment and ravish their existence. They must form a threefold cord as they struggle toward healing.
