Katie's nearly perfect life is violently disrupted when she is attacked inside of a parking garage. The senseless act of violence unleashes dormant supernatural abilities that save her from her attacker, but also take a terrible, and ultimately, unbearable toll. Reeling from the shock of a life suddenly gone awry, she takes to the streets where she befriends the streetwise Jenny, who manages to get Katie a spot at a women's shelter. Katie attempts to use her power to help some of the shelter's residents, only to find that the consequences are far more tragic than she could have imagined.
