Carter Morris is a high-priced corporate lawyer, negotiating the class-action suit of a lifetime which will result in a massive settlement. As he ponders his sellout, he relives significant moments of his youth, literally. From air raid drills to his arrest for protesting, his memories pull him out of present time and back into the past.
Carter tracks down his childhood best friend, the college sweetheart who broke his heart and his idolized older brother who was blown into a fragment of his former self in Vietnam. Meanwhile he struggles to understand what happened to his idealism and his best intentions.

Striking and toxin agreed to merge bloodclan and evil thrive. Striking talked to aspen broken and devil. Broken devides to throw rogueclan in the mix because its so small and inactive apparently. They theb fought over who should be leader. They finally decided on toxin striking and aspen. Devil and broken are deputy. May be a third but dont know if toxin chose his yet. Of course much of bloodclan hates striking so him telling them to move was, uh, difficult lets say. Then yesterday everyone just kept arguing with striking saying he aint leader and that no one will ever follow him (which isnt working too well for them). Course no one seems to like toxin either for some reason. Anyway then today more join and or come back and rogueclan members finally arrive. They see this mess and freak and well, some just flatout didnt like this...
