Mario's coming home.
The memories of the man who raised him as his own have been haunting him. It's time to confront the tension that has plagued their relationship ever since that one day years ago. The day that has haunted Mario's dreams.
His mother's husband had truly been the man of the house - a man Mario could look up to. Tough and hard, Luke had always been tender with Mario. But, the older man had distanced himself when a little domestic discipline didn't have the desired effect. It was an effect, however, Mario had been desiring ever since. No other man could fill the hole left behind by the absence of the older man that Mario loved.
Will Mario be pushed away, or pushed into?
