Living alone with his silent father and the shadow cast by his long-dead mother, Dustin waits. All he wants is to slip under the radar and survive what’s left of high school; get through his work at the photo lab, get by. Beyond that lies real life.

The woman beside it is striking too. What begins as an innocent curiosity in Terri Pavish, her photography, her freedom, her speed, becomes something else, and the past swings full-circle to haunt him.
