FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK
17 year old Fi Patterson lives with her stuffy English uncle and has an internship at a local hospital for the aged. She doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life, misses her dead mother, wonders about the father she never knew.
One bright spot is caring for Peter, a dementia-ridden old man whose occasional faraway smile can make her whole day.
And there’s her conflicted attraction to Zeke -- awkward, brilliant, talented -- who plays guitar for the old folks.
Then a group of very strange and frightening men show up for a “visit”...
Fi and Zeke’s worlds are shattered as their typical everyday concerns are suddenly replaced by the immediate need to stay alive -- and they try to come to grips with the unimaginable reality of the Firstborn.
