But there was a first love that he left behind in the pitiless confusion. When she and Michael cross paths once more, they rediscover their teenage passion as they battle the tide of injustice, and Michael foresees a happy future. The chance of deliverance comes in the form of a young witness, but the boy’s dangerous secret threatens a group of powerful people, and Michael knows he owes a debt to history.
