A little boy in a small rural town is more than he seems to be. He speaks frequently and lovingly of his 'other family' from long ago.

Our world moves at breakneck speed and the first time that many "close friends" ever discover that their loved one, neighbor, or spouse is depressed is when that person "acts out" in an act of violence to others or an act of violence toward themselves in the form of suicide.
