Shirley-Diane met Billy and fell in love with him at their North Carolina Narcotics Anonymous meeting. Together the two of them are striving for a clean life, attempting to overcome rough youths, bouts with hard drugs and, for Billy, jail time and the marine corps.
Soren, Shirley-Diane’s teenage son, is the self-described Dead Eye Boy, having a left eye closed from birth. Soren is a reflection of Billy’s own painful childhood, and Billy, seeing a chance at redemption, reaches out to Soren.
