Twenty years ago in the town of Medina, Kentucky, seventeen-year old Michael Yurley committed an unthinkable murder. His younger brother, Andrew, was the only witness to the crime and his testimony sent Michael to prison for life. The trial, the crime, and its infamy tore their family apart. Now, Michael’s case has come up for re-sentencing, and his lawyer, eager for a win, has summoned Andrew back to the place and people he fled, including a sister who rejected him for a blood betrayal, and a mother distraught by the loss of her sons. While on this collision course, Andrew develops an unlikely friendship with a young girl, Beth, who turns out to be more connected to him than he thinks. Can Beth lead Andrew down the path to relieve Andrew and his family of the stigma that has haunted them for the past twenty years?
