Overview

Cary Beacon is a super-hero in his own mind. His mission to rescue two endangered children leads him to Mexico, where he teams up with a masked wrestler who is crazier than he is. As Cary and the wrestler fight the battle of their lives to save the kids, Cary?s disappearance forces together his fractured family back home, torn apart by a fiery tragedy decades ago. In their quest to find Cary, his sisters and brother must break down walls, root out secrets, and unmask an arch-enemy long thought dead. The parallel quests of Cary and his family are linked to an explosive moment in real-life history: the Ku Klux Klan's siege of the Pennsylvania mining town of Lilly in 1924.
