Pinnacle is strong, he's fast and he can fly. He wants to follow in his father's footsteps and dedicate himself to saving others. He's a real-life superhero.
But he gives too much. He can't draw a line between his heroics and his own life. So when he meets a girl, she wants to look after him. She wants to tell him to be selfish. But will doing so be asking him to hang up the cape? Or can she convince him that he can be a hero without sacrificing himself?
