Dr. Nicklaus Hart has lost his moral compass. As an orthopedic surgeon in a busy trauma practice, the cares of the world overshadow what Nick knows is true about himself. With his life unraveling, he falls into his old patterns of stress relief but knows they are a poisonous cure.

Nick is shaken from his moral slumber when a massive earthquake strikes Eastern Turkey, and he makes the snap decision to respond. Thrown into the chaos and devastation, Nick must face his internal struggle head-on.

When he cares for a man and woman from Russia, Nick is cast into a mystery as old as time. He learns the Russians are searching for the original tree of life. Intrigued, Nick and his friends accompany the agents to a town in Southeastern Turkey. A region where ISIS has infiltrated and is positioning to reestablish the caliphate. The team falls into the hands of the terrorist cell. Threatened with his life, Nick must choose between his life and his faith, and he discovers the true meaning of the tree of life.
