Ellis McGowan, a child psychiatrist, thought he had seen and heard it all, especially with a wife, Jodie, in the same emotionally-draining profession. When the fire and collapse of an Abbey in the vicinity of their home leaves traumatised children of all ages displaced Ellis is ready to help in any way he can. Soon enough, he finds that everything is not as they imagined; more children than what were originally documented escaped from that building, many with no traceable origins and Ellis needs to find out why, prepared to go to great lengths to do so.

Zack and Alex, the eldest known survivors, soon find themselves in an environment radically different from what they are used to. In a warm, inviting household and faced with a real family the two aren’t sure how to handle things but are certain they will never be able to tell others what went on in their pasts.

Unwilling to lose all faith in the system, and his profession, Ellis is determined to get answers out of the boys to save them, and the others, from the torture they have been subjected to, even while knowing that the Abbey walls were easier to knock down than the ones that had formed around their hearts.

Student and arcade-runner Justin thought there was little that could happen to turn around his mundane, routine-following life. That was until he was held up at knife-point at the end of a long day. With the threatening boy seeking a place to tend to his extensive injuries Justin was forced to take him back to his workplace, hoping to end the night not nearly as scathed as his attacker seemed to be. When the captor, no older than himself, collapses, Justin has a chance to turn him in. He chooses not to. It’s the desperate and stubborn manner in which the boy refuses real medical attention that makes Justin wonder about what it is he has run away from.

The boy, Ethan, wakes only to confirm what Justin has discovered; he is an orphan from the Abbey that has burnt down in a neighbouring city. Even while realising that keeping a violent and socially-awkward teenager out of trouble is no easy task, and calling himself crazy for pursuing attempt, Justin offers Ethan a place to stay, and his silence, in return for help at the arcade, only for both to soon realise it is each other’s friendship that they desire more than anything.
