One late winter evening in NYC Tommy is waiting under a bridge to hopefully meet a new friend struggling with the same problem that he is having. Tommy has had a rough past living on his own since he was a kid, he can’t remember anything about anyone or anything that happened in the past almost as if he were brainwashed. Struggling with little to no money and no family to go and seek help he walks the streets and alleys to find someone to spend his time with, and find a possible job and make some money so he can make a decent living out of life.

One evening he is walking down Grand street and he recognizes a kid from his high school classes, he immediately puts up his hood and begins to walk extremely fast past him but was stopped by something that struck great interest into his mind.

Although in the other hand he finds a little bit of motivation because he also doesn’t want to live the rest of his life on the streets extremely poor. The door begins to open and there is no going back now, Tommy doesn’t spend any time doing any greetings and immediately pushes the women back that opened the door and gathers all of the family members in the family room holding his knife out asking for answers as to where the relic may be. The family members all have no idea what he is talking about, but Tommy knew that he couldn’t go back now with just hearing the simple words come out of the family’s
