Far inland, Tanner is concerned and frightened by a recurring dream of the sea, increasingly severe headaches and the rage that is beginning to control him. On a hockey trip to the coast, he believes he will have a chance to solve the mystery of the dream and hopefully find some measure of peace.
Meanwhile, Alex is stuck in a small coastal community with a father he can barely tolerate and a burning desire to get out, even if that means leaving behind the one person he really cares for. When he does make it to the big city, Alex finds that his problems have only just begun.
