Until it's discovered that Joey's birth mother forged the signature of Joey's birth father, so the adoption was a fraud and Joeys biological father has been released from prison and is ready to start life over with his son.
When a judge rules that Joey must be returned to his father, Joey is suddenly thrust into a volatile household of people he's never met and, a father who doesn't know how to show love without violence. The Campbells, in a silent haze of grief and utter disbelief, watch their son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind.
Struggling with the dilemma of following the law, their hearts, and what they know to be morally right, the Campbells find that desperation leads to dangerous thoughts. What if they devise a plan? Take Joey and simply disappear.... LIKE DANDELION DUST.
