Webb is doing OK by himself.  He has been kicked out of his home and now spends his time on the streets of Toronto.  His stepfather is abusive and he just can't live with that anymore.  If he tells anyone, he risks putting his mother into danger. When Webb's beloved grandfather dies, he is told to come to the reading of the will.  In the will, his grandfather tells him he must take a journey through 110 kilometers of Canadian wilderness and find a secret in Devil's Pass.  The trip is hard and confusing for Webb.  But as his grandfather always said, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
