Eighteen-year-old Morris Demler is a special kid, who can do things no one else can, but all he really wants to do is take care of his younger brother and sister after their mother disappears. With his unusual abilities, it should be easy to keep his family together, but the city of Buffalo seems determined to split them up. Bad move. Buffalo has no idea what Morrie is and what he is capable of.
Forced to team up with Wendy Gregory, who lives next door, the two of them have just declared war on Buffalo and they are not taking prisoners. Unfortunately, Morrie’s unique skillset has attracted the attention of the United States Army, which sees all sorts of interesting possibilities for him, but first they have to stop him and then they have to catch him. The chase is on as Morrie fights to save his family, save himself, and somehow build a life with Wendy.
