Marly Michaels has it all, popularity, good looks, a promising future, and the perfect relationship or so it seems. In reality, that perfect relationship is a living nightmare. With a methodical stripping away of her confidence, her volatile ex-fiancé nearly succeeds in destroying her. She has tried to escape numerous times, but in the end, he always finds her.
In one last desperate attempt at freedom, Marly turns to her long lost childhood friend Carla for help. She and her eccentric friends welcome Marly into their circle with open arms. In the company of Goths, a segment of society shrouded in mystery and speculation, Marly finally finds sanctuary and Gray Forrester.
Gray is the mesmerizing singer for the local band, These Bones. He is a man of many talents, including the ability to heal a wounded spirit. Inexplicably drawn to the sadness in Marly's eyes, he is compelled to help restore her soul. To do so, he must remain emotionally detached. Not an easy task for the gregarious Goth.
