She simply refers to him as The Writer because of what he seems to do best in life. He has just graduated from high school and is finally redeemed from years of abuse and ridicule from his fellow peers who simply refused to understand his unusual, silent behavior as well as his deep devotion to serving God and following the footsteps of a man called Jesus.
In spite of all that, he has managed to surround himself with a band of few but loyal true friends who build him up when he is weak and on the brink of losing faith. Not knowing what God wants him to do with his life after high school, The Writer is unaware that he is headed for disaster thanks to his unstable friendship with a rebellious youth named Rusty, a crazed pervert who is only out to deceive and hurt anyone he can, including The Writer, as well as ravaging any girl he can get his hands on.
The Writer firmly believes that he can encourage Rusty to change his ways, despite the desperate pleas of protest from his mother, his friends, and Annie, his favorite girl who once dated Rusty and knows what a devious monster he is. Along with this, The Writer is struggling with the talent he is known for, having been unable to write due to the sudden changes in his life involving Rusty, graduation, and his uncertain future.
Everything changes one night when The Writer brings in an injured stranger from off the streets. It is a simple and innocent act of charity that will forever change his life. The stranger takes The Writer on a memorable journey through life as hes never lived it before, ajourney that will come to a cruel and damaging end when Rusty unleashes his ultimate hatred and fury upon The Writer.
