Connor arrives in Baltimore with little more than the clothes on his back and the scars on his skin. Compared to where he's been the last few years, the city seems loud, busy, and almost frightening.

When Connor's former owner shows up, though, it could ruin everything. Can Adrian deal with the truth?
