Sean has a problem: his dreams come to life. It causes him enough trouble that he moves across the country to start fresh at Everwood Institute. But as his repetitive dreams become more vivid, he wonders if anything he sees is real, and if the black leaves Finn trails behind him are truly there...

Finn tries to keep his dreams under control, but this year, he keeps dreaming the same dream. It haunts him in the day, and doesn't help when he's trying to keep his past problems separate from his present life. Then there's the matter of Sean, who leaves flowers blooming wherever he steps...

As Sean and Finn grow closer, they realize there's more to their dreams - and each other - than they know.
