When the beloved teen boy of the small town of coastal False Bay, California ends up dying in a surfing accident on the other side of the world, he leaves a hole in everyone’s life. Lucky was the type that made friends wherever he went, and he went everywhere seeking adventure. Being a skilled surfer, how did he manage to die in the water? As family and friends are mourning his death, one of his friends shows up at the memorial party. And decides to stay.
Finn has a charismatic charm that allows him to slip right into the small community. Soon, he is the newly beloved boy of the town – befriending Lucky’s family, taking his old job and even dating his girlfriend. But as Lucky’s sister, Georgia struggles with her own mental illness and devastation of the death of her only brother, suspicions arise. Is there really something that Lucky is trying to warn her about Finn or are the voices in her head just a result of her weaning herself off of her medications?
She must decide soon and if there are any secrets to Finn, and she must have enough proof for everyone to believe the crazy girl accusing the loved newcomer.
