Benjamin Dusk Knight remembers nothing of the past two years or why he is in a prison mental hospital. In an effort to restore Dusk's memory, Dr. Matthews takes him on a journey through the tragic events of his childhood. After the death of his family, Dusk is sent to live at his aunt's house, where he finds nothing but abuse and neglect. His first foster home is not much better and Dusk completely stops communicating. The foster dad, Pepe, at his second foster home provides him with the love and security he needs to begin the healing process. When Pepe offers to adopt Dusk, another death of a loved one convinces Dusk he is cursed. He runs away and his life spirals out of control until a little girl gives him flowers. Inspired by her kindness, he gets his first job and a sense of normalcy.
While Dusk is complacent with this memory, Dr. Matthews forces him to dig deeper into his hidden past, pushing him to the edge of sanity, when at last, his darkest and most horrific secret is revealed.
