AT twenty-five Cass finds herself in the tabloids of the local gossip column accused of starting a strange, freakish fire, along with bizarre cultist behavior unbefitting to her bible belt small town which has the locals in a tizzy. Cass has no memory of the fire, only a bizarre gash on her palm in the shape of a seven.
BECAUSE of her declining mental state and lack of memory, the court orders Cass to undergo psychiatric evaluation for twelve months. Memories surface which sets off a series of events both harrowing, heartwarming and disturbing which throws Cass further into psychological turmoil. As her past comes back to haunt her, Cass realizes there is more at stake than she ever anticipated.

A chilling portrait of mayhem, an unfamiliar magic and madness, its creative genius and its destructive tentacles. It captures the unbearable cost of undiagnosed mental illness, and the lasting effects of childhood suppression, trauma and sexual abuse long after we’ve become an adult. An unforgettable story of family, faith and tradition. A testament to the resilient power of the human mind to heal and thrive, even in brokenness.
