I remember them. Their mouths, and their needles. That is all. That, and their painted eyes. Their mouths. They never spoke...
So begins Adam's odyssey into a nightmare of corruption and violence, where it is only his forlorn hope that he is helping his autistic son Justin that offers any solace. As everything implodes around him, Adam risks everything – his marriage, his family, his life – to lay hands on the one thing that might save him. His way out. His grail. A small bakelite box with a dial.
