Synopsis

Chase wakes up from a coma, his past a blur. To his family’s surprise, Chase is happy and free, until the dark memories begin to flood back like quick cuts of a movie trailer that just don’t add up. As Chase grapples with his attempted suicide, bad choices he’s made, and the people he’s hurt along the way, he begins to work through his pain and heal relationships with those he loves the most.
