The story is about a teen-aged boy, Brent, who has to face the consequences of foolish actions. He is overwhelmed by true moral guilt and is shown the way to atone and make some sort of amends for the consequences of his actions. Through this path of atonement and reparation, he deeply learns that all actions and choices have consequences and that the consequences match the action and choice: good actions and choices result in good consequences; bad or destructive actions and choices result in bad or destructive consequences.
