Donavon and Jet are exoś (alien technology fused with only the strongest and smartest yong children) are almost done with there shift as solders.
after raiding a house with sapes in it ( sapes are a terrorist group against aliens) Donavon was captured by them
the road where they were taking him was blocked and they were planing to ram through. Donavon go´s to see if he could get them through without anyone getting hurt. they sent annya to make sure he did not escape.
after driving for hours they arrive at a old cave that was turned into a war bunker by the sapes, where he met his mother who called herself max. She was a known terrorist.
Donavon was rescued by Jet and his fellow exoś and taken home. but he did not know if that was a good thing or not.
In the end Donovan's father died by a sniper on peace day, and the sapes left a farm that they were having a standoff at and all the hostages were saved.
