Thrust into the horrible hallways of pain at a tender young age, Johannes Adendorff begins a journey that immediately takes him into the cruel chambers of a reality that beats his spirit down with the hands of heartless lessons. Broken but not defeated he battles through one painful bruise and wound after another only to end up at a brick wall, which leads to destructive and dangerous addictions including drugs, loose relationships, and alcohol.
Educated, brilliant and brave, Johannes elevates his outward appearance onto a level of high success, while on the inside spiraling downward into a dark pit of misery and sorrow that haunts his every step. Perceived as a man of promise and confidence to the world, Johannes secretly hides his inner pain as he struggles through one day to the next, alone, and invisible to hope.
Then Jesus steps into Johannes life and begins lifting him up in ways that astound Johannes. He begins to see miracles take place right before his very eyes while accepting a healing love he never knew possible. Captured by a past scarred with pain and hurt, Johannes is thrust forward into a future filled with hope and a promise that is alien to him.
Will Johannes dark past defeat the powerful steps that Jesus created for him to walk, or will he take the powerful hand of faith and overcome his addictions, pain, nightmares, and agony? Will the love of one special woman finally lead him away from the arms of others? Will faith lead him away from drugs and alcohol? Will Jesus heal his tormented heart? Or will the past yank Johannes down into a bottom dark pit?
