Eight-year-old Eddie Dunmore has a perfect life until chance throws him a curve ball on a damp and foggy December morning. The gifted third-grader is a sandlot baseball all-star loved by his parents and well-liked by everyone else.
In school, a fire breaks out and traps five classmates inside the gym. By the end of the day, four students and a school janitor are dead, with only Eddie left alive.
For years after the tragedy, survivor’s guilt haunts Eddie spiraling him downward until one night, he discovers the truth and begs God to grant his one wish.
