Get to know Conor Kelman, a young man coming of age in the 50s. Discover the triumph and trauma he faces every day. Between being misunderstood and not learning how to deal with his issues, Conor is in a constant state of awkward discomfort.

 Outwardly, he searches for something to call his own–his girlfriend–his guitar–a little white house in an apple orchard. Inwardly, he hangs from a cliff by his fingertips.

 Visions play in his head haunt and distract him. They won’t stop no matter how fast or far he runs. Journey with Conor and discover the joy growing within the pain.






Conor Kelman finds trouble the minute he walks through the doors of the new school. The hunger to fit in drives him to those his eighth-grade teacher warned to avoid.

New friends, each carrying a unique brand of trouble, invite him into their close-knit circle, but Conor feels like an outsider.

Cigarettes, beer parties, and fast girls don’t smother the fire in his search for something to call his own.
