Brad Lunders is a teenager forcefully abducted from his home in the middle of the night by his own mother's consent to a harsh wilderness reform facility. There is no contact with the outside world and the retired war colonel in charge prides himself on breaking an inmate's sprit in order to correct delinquent behavior. As we learn of the tragic events that led to Brad's arrival, unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear the reform facility apart, forcing Brad to confront not only his fellow inmates and the personnel in charge, but finally his own sense of what is right and what is wrong.
