“Where There is Despair, Hope,” is about nine-year-old Pierce Emerson, who has been left alone after the death of his mother. After being passed from foster home to foster home, he has come to the last stop: Boyd Home. Consumed with fear and anxiety, Pierce has withdrawn into himself. But Cade Dalton, lead play therapist at Boyd Home, is no stranger to trauma. As Dalton tries to help Pierce, he must face the darkness and pain that has overpowered the child and help to bring Pierce out of it.
