When Jesse Barlow escaped to Hollywood, he hungered for fame-but eleven years of failure result in a drug-induced suicide attempt. Revived at death's door, Jesse returns to his hometown to make amends. But Jesse's commitment becomes a baptism by fire when his secret son's illness calls for a sacrifice-one that could cost Jesse the very life he regained. A story of mercy, hope and second chances.
