Synopsis

Homer Wells was a parent-less child, raised and mentored by his orphanage's doctor, a man named Larch. Their's was an extraordinary bond. Larch taught Homer everything about medicine and what he could about right and wrong. All Homer wanted was one thing Larch couldn't give him - rules to live by. Given the chance to leave the orphanage, and the only family he's ever known, Homer realizes there is an entire world to discover. His new life provides more excitement than he could have imagined, especially when Homer falls in love for the first time. But, when forced to make decisions that will change the course of his future, Homer ultimately realizes he can't escape his past.
