His special skills get him a green light as an agent with OSS, who requires he kill in exchange for helping him. But, how can he kill? Not killing has nothing to do with being a coward - everything to do with respecting life, a lesson learned and deeply ingrained on his beloved farm, Shelby's Creek. His future soon teaches him there may be more to his life than Shelby's Creek.
