The story focuses on a man who suffers "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed, during heart surgery. His mother must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them, while trying to unfold the story hidden behind her son's young wife.
Human nature is a conflicted beast. Loyalty are the ties that bind or the chains to be broken, but how far would we go for the right reasons not the wrong? What would we sacrifice to avenge what was lost, and could we destroy all that was given? Could we take a life, and if we break away, where would we go? Could we survive the chaos of a life now gone, and what would wait for us at the end of this road? And therein lies the conflict of our nature, torn between trust and revenge, and tearing at the depths of who we really are inside, a war waiting for its end. Intensity rises in a gripping tale heading straight into the darkest corners of our heart but taking a Wrong Turn at Tahoe.
