"To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful…This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking." ~Agnes de Mille
Having spent a year and a half in rehab with genuine support and understanding from his family, TJ Hammond should be on the road to recovery. But a 12 step program isn’t helping with the lingering depression TJ has battled all his life, and he finds himself again teetering on the edge. With the pressure of his mom’s run for president lurking just around the corner, TJ knows he’s going to have to make a difficult choice. Put on a brave face and stand beside his family, or take a step back to focus on his own well-being?
In the end, the choice may be easier than he expects. Through his sponsor Clint, TJ discovers an unexpected outlet to help in his recovery…dance. With Clint’s help, TJ leaves the carnival that DC has become to start a new life in New York City. There he can embark on his own quest for self-discovery. It’s time for him to discover who he is outside the enormous influence of his family name.
And maybe, he can find the anchor he’s been missing all his life.
