Lee wasn't there when his wife gave birth to his daughter Brenda. The years spent in a Vietcong prison camp, surviving an escape, and retiring from a post in the Army as a survival technician, gave little opportunity for a father/daughter bond. It wasn't until tragedy struck that he found that bond with his three-year-old granddaughter Angela, especially when she called him "Poppy".
Throughout her tender years, Lee taught Angela about the forests of North Carolina and the ways of survival. They both looked forward to those exciting times together.
Fate takes many turns in a person's life, and Angela found herself in a dysfunctional foster home. Will she remember all she was taught as she ponders an escape? Will she survive using her own capabilities or will there be an intervention?
