Stephen's a gifted sculptor. One day as Davie looks on, Stephen brings a tiny figure to life. It's a talent he has, the gift of creation and he knows that Davie has this talent, too. Davie allows Stephen to convince him to help bring a life-size figure to life and Clay is born. Clay is innocent, but Stephen has special plans for him.
What has Davie helped to unleash on the world?
