“I have to fight back.


But I can't fight back.


It's so strong, the feeling is so strong.


I can't breathe and there's a tapping a light tapping that's when I wake.


I wake up.”

Each must find a way to build a life out of chaos.


But what happens when the ties that bind become the thing that holds you back?
