When Alicia meets the new guy in school, there is something about the mischievous look in his eyes that implies he's breaking the rules by talking to her. It's the rule troubled kids live by - don't let anyone into your life. Don't let them see the real you.
Alicia and Zack both have secret lives that only the other can relate to. They suffer in silence, afraid that no one will believe them. Can their love help free them from their turbulent lives, if only for a few minutes at a time? Together, can they find the courage and strength to escape from their hidden world of lies and deception in order to live normal lives?
