Is self-destruction liberation?

University transfer student Alex Quinn discovers the chaos from home can’t be escaped; it’s inside of her. She’s traumatized, isolated and self-destructive. When calls from home inform Alex of her father’s arrest and suicide, she’s desperate to fill his void.

Stalking classmate and burn victim Julian Winters is just the beginning. Strangers online are eager to validate her. Will Alex liberate herself from her father or imprison herself in his shadow? In her journey through grief and society’s underbelly, she’ll find out to what extent self-destruction is liberation.
