As they try their best to recover from the tragic loss, they realize Glenby is an all right place. They fit in well at school and make new friends easily.

Everything is going well until a drug-addicted teenager named Eddie Dutra (James Spader) sets his sight on the attractive young Abby. When Abby and Loren make it clear that Abby isn't interested in Dutra's disgusting advances, Dutra and his four cronies make it their mission to ruin Abby and Loren's lives in Glenby. As Dutra's attempts at terrorism get progressively scarier, Abby and Loren's resolve to survive the bully strengthens.
