When Ever’s father passes away suddenly, she is devastated. Not long after that, her mom has a stroke and Ever’s anguish becomes almost unbearable. That’s when she gets the idea to form a group she calls Boys and Girls Screaming. Ever brings together kids from their school who have suffered trauma so they can share their stories and begin to heal.

Although the others find solace in the group, Ever tumbles further into depression until she reaches a breaking point. As the group learns the true source of Ever’s pain, they jump into action to help her find a way out.
