In the final days of intensive treatment, Em meets Wyatt, and their friendship feels like tacky gum on the bottom of converse immediately. When Em meets his rocker-wanna be sister, their connection is undeniable. As romantic, platonic, and familial love grow bigger and bigger, the three find themselves ignoring the painful cracks in their foundation. When the role of caretaker begins takes space in their lives, the three find themselves feeling farther and farther away from each other, all under one roof. A secret that could easily end in fire can't be kept forever. What i hope i never tell you, because if i do, what if that is what i become is a story of recovery and the magic of a hot shower followed by a fresh tortilla.
