The Wilderness of James
James is lost.
He's crawled into his shell as he struggles to deal with the absence of his father. James lives in a world of his own making: a world that is defined by his bizarre fascination with death.
As tensions mount with his mother at home, James begins to explore the wilderness of an intoxicating city.
Through an infatuating girl and a charismatic stranger, James starts to open his eyes as he's forced to deal with some hard truths.
