When spiraling out of control,

taking a shot at mercy is all you can do

Emmitt Wasson’s life wasn’t perfect. But with a decent job and a loving family, his life was pretty good. That is until a horrific accident left him and his family spiraling out of control.


Dealing with unfathomable grief, Emmitt slowly reasserts himself as the man he believes his family needs. As he struggles to bring chaos under control, he is faced with a new set of challenges.


Blighted by her father’s failings, Emmitt’s daughter goes off the rails. Fueled by resentment and angst, she makes a series of choices that set her on a dangerous path. With his daughter’s future hanging in the balance, he faces a battle requiring a strength and a faith he has yet to understand.


Through unlikely friendships, he will discover the drive and determination he needs to face an immense struggle he isn’t sure he can even win. But fight he must, especially if he is to rescue his daughter from the demons that are tearing her apart.
