When Aimee Coleman is involved in a serious car accident, not only is her own world thrown into question, but also that of her protective twin brother, Alex.
Already battling with a shadowy past, Alex's demons are brought further into light when he blames himself for not being there to take care of his twin. The accident brings up a guilt that has simmered below the surface of his thin mask for years, and if that wasn't enough, he's about to take on a patient that will either make, or break him.
The girl who put his sister in hospital.
