As he embraces a new chapter and starts a band, Ethan thrives on the joy that accompanies doing what he loves. But soon Ethan is challenged to overcome much of what he cannot recall from his time away. As he becomes conflicted between who and what he loves and what he is, his past returns with a vengeance and transforms everything.
