On a random summer night, the trio catches a glimpse of what appears to be murder and the murderer sees them, too. A game of cat-and-mouse ensues that escalates through the underground world of experimental treatment, off-the-grid sports, and forbidden love. Allie, who can never see the light of day, discovers she alone can stop a human monster.
