In SAVIOR, Ricky Lyons, Al's son, is that paragon of boyhood, an athlete and a scholar. His father has hopes for his perfection which are just dreams of extending his own glory and reconquering the ecstatic joys of those never-to-return days.
Ricky has struggled with developing his own personhood and ambitions, a conflict that has led him to the depths of suicidal ideation and self-hate. But in Guatemala, he finds an inner peace while the two, father and son, wrestle with the big waves of the Pacific in the surfing town of Monterico. Now he sees he is stronger than his father, but curiously, he needs him more than ever, and when Al is taken prisoner by the Santos Muertos, Ricky dedicates himself to finding and saving his father, a quest that will lead him through the underbelly of the Americas to the Santos Muertos compound deep beneath the Canadian oil tar belt. This is a coming of age journey like no other, and in the end we will know, as will Ricky, the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice.
