As a precocious, enthusiastic boy of thirteen, Tommy had the whole world ahead of him...until a trusted association with his Boy Scout leader destroyed his innocence and shattered his self-perception. To make matters worse, the abuse Tommy endured took place within the sacred walls of the Mormon Church. While his tormentor went on to molest at least five other boys and was ultimately convicted on these charges, Tommy's own abuse went unacknowledged, the denial of which forever altered his life's path.
Succumbing to a lack of trust and self-worth, Tommy descends into a tumultuous life of drug and alcohol abuse, always seeking to mask the pain of his past. It is his relationship with the young, courageous single mother, Arlene Ryan, and her infant daughter that finally leads him into sobriety and brings him to a point in his life where he must question the failures of those he once trusted to protect him. Struggling to understand how reputable organizations can act in such reprehensible ways, Tommy is soon embroiled in a legal drama with the Mormon Church itself as he seeks the retribution and recognition of the Truth that had been suppressed for far too long. Throughout this journey, Tommy is gradually put back on the path for which his life was destined, with the ultimate purpose of serving victims and understanding the true meaning of justice, forgiveness, and Love.
