Sean Clarke wakes up to find his barely adult daughter has run away of from home…again. He’s not too concerned since he knows she’s run back to her junkie ex-boyfriend and supplier, Howie. Katie had started down her dark path the day she found her mother floating in the bathtub with blood blooming out of slits down her wrists. It was no secret that Sean’s wife killed herself to escape the pain inflicted by her husband’s transgressions, and Katie wanted nothing to do with the man who drove her mother to such a gruesome end. Sean just wants to make everything better no matter the cost.
