Ben Miller is a paralegal with the Hennepin County District Attorney's office and he has an unpleasant task, returning a runaway boy home to a tiny town in northern Minnesota. The teen, Clay Taukkala's, behavior is a little strange and so Ben asks his boyfriend, Rush Romer, to ride with on this road trip. They begin delving into the boy's emotional reactions and discover the real story about what happened to him. Not everything is as it seems.

Please note this story discusses issues which are of a disturbing abusive nature.  While there are no on-scene descriptions of the action, the events that have happened are clear.  The main character is a teen.  The subject matter is important, but if these issues bother you, please don't read.
