Seventeen year old Lauren Hart is forced to leave her family home after a violent confrontation with her stepfather. She takes shelter in a disused factory with a group of homeless people. Despite many warnings from people who know Nash, the leader of the group, she falls into an ill-fated relationship with him. As Lauren discovers more about Nash her infatuation begins to diminish and is gradually replaced with an understanding that she has made a terrible mistake.
As events unfold Lauren discovers she has an inner strength and a survival instinct that keeps pushing her forward. An elderly man finds himself coming to her aid and the two of them begin to form a special bond that seems to be the answer to both their prayers.
But Lauren’s past has not finished with her… And now there are other innocent people who may also become collateral damage as Lauren’s life spirals out of control.
