Twenty-six-year-old Louie Creighton knows there is something inside him he can't control.... Ever since he can remember, Louie has had a short fuse. People always said he'd amount to nothing. He wasn't smart enough to get into college. He wasn't tough enough to be a Marine. No one believed in him. No one except his father, Mike Creighton.... Louie's father always taught him to turn the other cheek. He was a true mentor, teaching him how to be a man in a world of cowards. But when his father is murdered the day after scratching a winning lottery ticket, Louie's inner monster can't be contained. He becomes determined to track down the suspect at any cost. All along, he struggles to live by his father's motto - to find out what you live for, you have to discover what you'd die for. Then he meets Harlow McPherson.... Her entire life has been a battle. Harlow grew up in the system, bouncing from one foster home to the next. Most weren't that bad, but some were hell. The only comfort was the fact she wasn't alone. Her twin brother, Hendrix, was always there - until he took his own life years later, abandoning Harlow in a cruel world. Unable to forgive, it's Louie who reminds her there's still hope. When Louie unleashes his inner monster, and Harlow finally faces her demons, will they lose themselves to the darkness, or risk it all defying destiny? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tia Sorensen.
