"Danny is a boy on the edge. A boy teetering on the brink of no return, living in fear. Cathy is his mother. She's broken by fear. Chris Kane is fear -- and they belong to him. But one day they escape. They're looking for freedom, for the promised land where they can start really living. Instead they find prejudice and danger of another kind.
