As one of the hottest new prospects in New York City’s ultra-competitive art scene, Benjamin Young’s star is on the rise.
Just when his future couldn’t appear brighter, Ben discovers that he is soon to become a father, irrevocably altering the trajectory of his life.
As he takes on the responsibilities of a single parent, and the drudgery of a dead-end job, he also tries to open his heart to true love. Along the way he tries to overcome an abusive childhood, and struggles to be the kind of father he never had.
But when his troubled, violent past comes back to haunt him, he must decide if everyone—no matter how hurtful—deserves a second chance.
