Synopsis

Sean (16) and his friends spot a floating RIZE user (a ‘fallen’) and wait for him to drop from the sky.

Sean is uneasy and unfamiliar with this common pursuit and with alpha, Lusi (18). She is sympathetic to learn that soft-natured Sean has recently become parentless.

Lusi’s pity for Sean is fleeting, as he makes an innocent misstep and loses the freshly-acquired body.

Desperate, Sean is presented an opportunity for redemption. A floating fallen in a train tunnel provides him the chance to prove his commitment to Lusi, but at the expense of the fallen's life and his own morality.
