When you know your world is predetermined, it’s hard to care about your choices. This is true for James Odin. On a rain-soaked night in 1991, two cars collide, leaving all drivers dead on the scene, including the mother of the lone survivor — a child — James Odin.  It’s a tragedy.  But what’s more tragic is that seven-year-old James foresaw the accident happening two days prior.  He tried to prevent it, but who’s going to believe a kid who claims to see the future?  Twenty-plus years later, James is a product of the failed foster care system.  Knowing that the events of his future are predestined, he’s getting by, using his ability for petty crime and cheap thrills. But when a pre-sentient vision reveals to him his own imminent murder, James must go on the run and change the fate he knows is fixed.
