But sometimes a perfect life can be too good to be true. After his parents are killed in a suspicious car accident, Jon travels to his aunt and uncle’s house in the middle of Nebraska. There he accidentally turns on his father’s mysterious fusion reactor prototype. Now those most dear to Jon loathe him.
