But when a near fatal accident causes him to lose what seemed to define the person he had become; Caleb chooses to retreat from the public eye and find a place to rest and heal. The more time he spent mourning the loss of his abilities, the more life seemed to lose its purpose.

That is, until he discovers there is more of a purpose to his life than he could ever have anticipated. Now, faced with a seemingly immeasurable task at hand, can Caleb succeed and, in turn, find happiness in the life that he lives.
