Mysteriously, over night, a father disappears from his family home. A few months later, the mother vanishes too. As the police investigations go on and on and reporters descend on the home week after week - as well as visits by social workers, doctors, and concerned relatives - the abandoned seventeen-year-old Cirrus starts his own investigation into who his parents really were, or who they might have been.
