Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A year has passed since Lucy Darby's sudden and unexpected death, leaving her husband David and son Whitley to mend the gaping hole in their lives and carry on. David, a trauma-site cleanup technician, spends his nights expunging the violent remains of strangers, opting to help others move on with their lives while he is unable to do the same. Whitley--a social pariah known simply as The Kid--hasn't spoken for the better part of a year. Questions pertaining to the events of Lucy's death begin to haunt David, and he slowly begins to lose his grip on reality. On top of that, The Kid believes that his mother is still alive and out there somewhere waiting to come home. As David descends further into madness and The Kid's sense of urgency grows, they are sent hurtling towards a stunning conclusion that will force both of them to confront reality.
