Our story…

In 2003 a massive fire broke out at the Station Nightclub in Rhode Island  where a packed crowd gathered to see the 80's band Great White. 100 people died from the fire, the youngest victim being 18 year old Nicky O’Neill. Nicky was a 80's rock fan, the songwriter and front man for a rock band, and a playwright who had left behind a mysterious play about teenage guardian angels. After his death inexplicable events led his family to believe Nicky’s presence was not gone.
