CIG boss Ursula Frei asks Aeron for help to prevent a group of children in the Caprock Academy from becoming victims to a life that created the same scars Frei herself bears. This personal request is complicated by Aeron’s dimmed “burdens” as a consequence of healing her mentor Renee.
To ensure CIG can get involved, Aeron fakes a vision only to find out that her mother, Lilia, has had the same one. So Aeron, Renee and Frei head in under cover.
The problem is that Lilia’s vision is different. Aeron’s faked version sees the three friends pull off the mission, rescue the children and walk away stronger; Lilia’s version sees the three agents implode and their mission unravel under the weight of resentment, arguments and misunderstandings.
Lilia makes the call to let them go in because she believes they can get the children to safety…
… Even if it means one of them gets left behind.
