Richard Michaels is a sharp, motivated, young political activist living in Seattle. But when he is informed in a meeting of political activists that he must accept that the movement has depleted all observed peaceful methods of change and he has to accept more radical means of change, he risks being forced to leave. He must make his way through the battles for peace that he fought for most of his life while witnessing escalating government violence aimed towards its citizens. He finds himself hiding from the authorities in order to preserve both his life and his conscience that governs both his actions and thoughts.

After a highly charged meeting, he decides to leave behind the movement and the new rising violence in it. He goes on the run and ultimately winds up unknown, unidentified, and out of the sight of the authorities. Teaching in a small New England seaside town where he has highly charged encounters with a Mother Superior more than a decade his senior and with his gifted students more than a decade his junior.
