Cassie is a teenage girl who recently moved in with her stepdad, Rick. One day, Cassie went into his office and she looked through some of his files and sees that some kids kill themselves when Rick injects a drug called socom in them. She does more research and finds out that he doesn't even have parent's permission. Rick finds out that Cassie is seeing this stuff so he sends her to a camp in Mexico because he apparently found crystal meth in her room. They beat kids there and Cassie wants to get out before Rick gives more kids socom.
Cassie, a teenage girl, is getting taken away in a van to somewhere in Mexico called Peaceful Cove, because her stepdad, Rick apparently found crystal meth in her room when she knows he put it in there.
A couple days before she got taken away, Cassie has to go into Rick's office, that he doesn't let anyone go in, and looks at some of his files, and finds out that he is giving teens drugs, because he is a doctor, and they end up killing themselves!
A day before Cassie gets taken away, she wants to tell someone about socom, the drug that made some kids kill themselves, so she tells Thatcher, a kid at her school, and they set up a meeting with a news reporter to stop Rick, but she doesn't believe them.
Cassie arrived at Peaceful Cove where they actually beat kids, and after a couple of weeks, Cassie decides she wants to escape with her new friend Hayley, and after a fail of Cassie trying to make her dad bring her home, they come up with a plan.
Cassie managed to escape, but Hayley didn't, instead, she lit Peaceful Cove on fire for a distraction and Cassie walked through the desert for days, until she finally found help.
Rick gets arrested at his socom presentation because Cassie and Thatcher went in disguises and Cassie's mom, Jackie, also said it was true that the kids killed themselves.
