After his attempted suicide Ryan doesn’t let anyone get to him. Each touch or gesture of friendship unsettles him. His favourite place is a waterfall, where he goes to almost every day as the mass of water prevents him from pondering. If his parents knew about this haven, they would forbid him to go there again. After his attempted suicide they keep their eyes glued to him almost all the time.
At school he is regarded as a freak. But hasn’t he been seen like this all along? Suddenly, he is approached by his classmate Nicky, who has an unusual favour to ask him. She wants Ryan to help her looking for a suitable psychic to seek contact to her dead father. Ryan cannot distract Nicky from her idea. And it doesn’t take a long time until he realises that it is not only him who needs help to find a way back into life.
