Ryan spends most of his time alone at the local waterfall because it's the only thing that makes him feel alive. He's 16, post-suicidal, and trying to figure out what to do with himself after a stint in a mental hospital. Then Nicki barges into his world, asking questions about Ryan's depression that no one else has ever been brave enough--or cared enough--to ask.
