Caden Bosch is a bright high school sophomore who struggles to keep his head above water in a sea of mental illness. His friends start noticing his unusual behavior and keep their distance. Caden’s parents are concerned by his verbal outbursts of paranoia. The voices in Caden’s head and his strange dreams keep him from acting like a typical teenage boy, so his parents eventually admit him to Seaview Memorial Hospital. During his time at Seaview, Caden learns more about himself and how to live with mental illness.
