The story of a nightmare that will not cease and a journey through fear towards hope. It's a choice between a past you cannot remember and a future you cannot predict. Does Jacob have the strength to take the journey and the courage to make the right choices?
A boy wakes up in the middle of a field. He cannot remember how he came to be there or even who he truly is. All he knows for certain is his name, Jacob.
This is the story of a journey through fear towards hope, a choice between a past you cannot remember and a future you cannot predict.
