Short Synopsis
A boy in trouble. A family on the lam. A crazed ex-con bent on revenge. And a man fighting his tortured past. Can this man pull himself together in time to save his family?

Full Synopsis
After selling his company for millions, Colby Walker takes his family—and his son's friend Jess—on vacation, wanting nothing more than to unwind in the sun and surf. But he spots the alarming signs in short order: Jess's downcast eyes, a familiar passivity, and angry red welts marching across the boy's bare back. Walker understands what they mean because he'd been that boy, many years ago. He'd suffered in silence, too.

Can Walker stand by and let the torment continue? Does he trust the authorities—the same ones who had failed him in his youth—to take care of Jess? Hell no.

With Jess in tow, Walker packs up the minivan and takes his family on the lam, keeping one step ahead of Jess's cruel father and unhinged ex-con aunt. When the stakes escalate and his headstrong actions put people's lives in jeopardy, Walker must finally conquer his past before he can save those he loves.
