Where do all the missing children go? The answer could be more incredible than you can imagine. When a little boy disappears off the face of the Earth, his good-for-nothing father turns over a new leaf and sets out to track him down…but it takes a strange visitor from the future to point him in the right direction. Has the little boy been swept into a horrifying hell on Earth, or is he bound for a miraculous world beyond forever? His fate reveals a glorious destiny for the missing, one that rests on the shoulders of the boy’s father. Can this man, plagued by his own dark demons and addictions, find redemption—and perhaps secure the future of all mankind—by making the ultimate sacrifice?
