Description

A provocative and compelling story of a teenager determined to confront his past.

When Francis Cassavant returns to his home town, his face horribly disfigured during World War II, he is tormented by memories of the conflict. People believe him to be a teenage war hero, not realising that his act of 'heroism' was in fact a suicide attempt. Back home, Francis has a mission to get revenge on the youth leader he idolised, but betrayed him. And he's prepared to do whatever it takes.

Heroism, conflict, struggle against evil, guilt, forgiveness, loneliness, loyalty.
