Ten years ago, a man and his son trekked into this wilderness and never returned. They were presumed dead until a decade later when the son appeared.

Maya Stark, the assistant language therapist, is charged with making a connection with him, but he refuses to answer questions about his father or the last 10 years of his life. As she’s drawn closer to her high-profile patient, she’ll risk everything to reunite him with his father who has disappeared from the known world.
