In the early morning hours of September 13, 1920, a tragic murder takes place at the Pulchalski farmhouse in Southington, Ohio. Twelve-year-old Stanley desperately runs along a dusty country road sent by his frantic mother to fetch the Sheriff.

An infamous scandal unfolds over the next several weeks taking Stanley and his siblings on a harrowing journey through a notorious orphanage and an incredible attempt to escape. Can finding true love be Stanley's only hope to finally coming to terms with the torment of his tragic past?

The story is based on incredible true events in the life of Stanley William Miller formally known to the world as Stanley William Puchalski.
