In the small, midwestern town of Hopeton, drugs run rampant and the youth are set on paths of self-destruction. Enter Dylan Clark, a vagabond with an uncanny wisdom and a complete lack of fear. The estranged widow he befriends, along with a quartet of misguided teens, are intrigued but skeptical about this man's strange power. It seems that everywhere he goes, people are either inspired or terrified by him. Hopeton has its secrets, and Dylan is determined to root them out, no matter what the danger, in order to stop the cycle of corruption that pervades the hearts and minds of those in power and those who grow up in their shadow. But it will take more than just one man to set things right. Those under Dylan's tutelage must decide how much is too much. When is taking a chance for the better of the community worth the risk of ridicule or alienation?
