Jake, Jojo, and Jamie, all 12-year-olds. Jake  lives in a neighborhood controlled by violence and fear. He meets a sculptor across the street, and his eyes are opened to another world.

Jamie and his older brother, Eric, are alone in the world, but Jamie's way with art and dogs helps them find a home.
