Jennifer Tate (Hudson Leick) is pretty ordinary – or so she thinks. Sure, her life has been tough, losing both her parents as a baby and growing up in a string of foster homes. But Jen is a fighter – she knows how to get by. Now 21 years old, she works as a waitress, scraping together money to put herself through college. Jen lives with her boyfriend Lewis (Eric Loren), lead singer in an up and coming rock band. It is hard to believe that it was almost two years ago that fate brought them together, two souls more alike than either can quite comprehend.

Just lately, Lewis has been having really bad nightmares. Dreams that make no sense, dreams that he can't even begin to explain to Jen.

He is unnerved and leaves the stage in a sweat – even Jen is unable to reassure him – something is not right.
