In the future, telepathy isn’t a gift - it’s a criminal act. A new police force rounds up telepaths to house them in the mountains... ...but that idyllic setting is a gilded cage with freedom just out of reach. Joe hates his life. His ability to read minds gets him thrown into Brightside, a prison town far from society.

After a horrible tragedy, some of the telepaths decide to make their escape. But they’re up against a vicious pack of guards who see the prisoners as dangerous freaks.
