Jason returns home to get away while he studies for the upcoming bar exam.

Over the few months he's there, he begins to question what life is about, and what is his purpose in it? Written by Barley

Jason: Okay. How's that?
David: Well, it's a start. So, they run you off up north or did you just get homesick?
Jason: Do I know you?
David: No... you just look weak.
