The story follows 18-year-old high schooler, Mario, who is not only recovering from the recent tragic loss of his father but also from his own parallel personal tragedy. The story is told through various vignettes including not only adventures with his new best friend, a rescue dog named Mickey, and a “wise-mysterious” girl he meets in the forest but also through his inner journey as he moves through various types of therapy sessions, dashes of art/music, family support, and a sprinkle of magical realism. Now, after beginning to make headway in his recovery and starting to open to love again, Mario must face a new potential life-threatening challenge.
