Seventeen-year-old Bryan had been on his own for a long time now. Life was tough in his rural Texas town, but he was giving it his best shot. Things were looking up when he entered into an intense relationship with a street-smart Mexican girl named Rosa.
Then a dark turn takes place. Harassed by local bullies, Bryan's anger and suppressed hostility rises to the surface. It soon becomes clear that his violent lashing out is more than just self-defense, or even a troubled teenager's need for revenge.
Bryan's friends have been dabbling in the forbidden world of the occult, unwittingly releasing a form of evil they never imagined. Bryan is the target. His soul is the prize. Rosa is perceptive enough to realize something sinister is going on, and that Bryan is – quite literally – not really himself anymore.
A malevolent battle is being waged just outside the visible world. Bryan's life intersects with bikers, cops, truck drivers and many others, but none of them can see what is truly happening. A dark entity is hell-bent on using the homeless youth for its own malevolent purposes…with only the love a determined young woman standing in its way.
