Set in America during the final chaotic months of Donald Trump's failed presidency, the RESTORATION series details the heroic efforts of a philanthropic humanist foundation to reach out to and save the victims of patriarchal religions and domestic abuse.
Despite the advances in contemporary culture's acceptance regarding the spectrum of genders and human sexuality, gay kids still have it tough— especially when their parents are members of an ultra- fundamentalist cult.
For Chris Brenner, escaping from home is just the first step in his race for liberation. At the Center for Restoration, the young gay man meets Mary and George, two other young people escaping from their own intolerable family dynamics. Together, they struggle to heal and learn in a supportive environment.
But despite the bright lure of first love, Chris and his friends must still struggle with a society coming apart, torn by the darker undertow of social media addiction and the national misery inflicted by the divisive Republican administration, with its racist and sexist agenda. Against the backdrop of this tumultuous epoch, the personal tragedies, choices, mistakes, and evolution of Chris, Tom, George and Mary weave an unforgettable tapestry of modern life at the turning of the age.
