Sean, finally eighteen, is determined to live his own life and make his own decisions. Storm tries to protect Sean at any cost, and learns that no matter his efforts, he can't always shield Sean from the pains of growing up. Sean finds out the hard way that love is sometimes blind, sometimes life-threatening, sometimes unexpected, but sometimes - if you are lucky enough and keep your eyes open - true.
