Focus on the Light

Lily was in a secret high school love affair with her boyfriend Mitch's best friend, Nick. When Mitch found out, he put Nick in the hospital, and the assault trial judge put Mitch in the military. Now. 48 hours before Mitch is scheduled for departure for the War in the Middle East, he and Lily visit family friend, Dr. Timothy Hutchins. In efforts to find out the psyche behind Mitch attacking Nick, the doctor performs a hypnotherapeutic technique that pierces Mitch's sub-consciousness, revealing his plans to go AWOL with Lily, escaping to the Canadian wilderness, and avoid fighting in the Iraqi desert.

When Dr. Hutchins tries to change these plans, Mitch pierces his consciousness.
