Overview
Tom is a frustrated and rebellious teenager who expects little of life. He routinely shouts down his mother Valerie, a young, single mother. Certain that Valerie drove his father away, Tom harbors a deep resentment for his mother.

Everything changes for Tom when he and Valerie are involved in a terrible car accident. Tom revives in the hospital, but finds his mother in a coma. Since they had been bitterly arguing when they crashed, Tom feels deeply responsible.

Tom is placed in a group home by the juvenile court and meets Malik, who oversees the group home. Malik imposes the stern, and at times, stinging discipline that Tom has been missing in his life. When Valerie awakes from her coma, Tom is shocked to learn that she has lost her memory, which, he is told, may only come back through reminders of the past. Now Tom must face a man's decision: whether to restore Valerie's horrific past to her, or protect her from its ravages... even as he confronts the demons of his own past.
