Yes, the synopsis you asked me to write. This is it: Rock Bottom is Tessie’s story, a Cuban refugee who is growing up on the crime-infested streets of Key West. Her former mentor, Doc Palmer, a disillusioned alcoholic, returns to the island to try to save her, all the while in denial about his own problems. Tessie, in her teen years, is the epitome of the ancient child, knowing much more intrinsically than most of us learn in a lifetime. When Palmer hears that Raul Curry, a drug-dealer and a pedophile, has kidnapped her, he gets two friends, Nate Burston a charter captain and Dave Cameron a Navy veteran, to help him find her. She is being held in a house on Key Haven, a nearby island. The men plan a SEAL type rescue via the canals, but when they get Tessie on board, the kidnappers give chase. They careen wildly through the ocean flats off Key West, until Burston performs some maneuvers that save them. Reflecting later, Palmer reclaims the sense of purpose he lost when he sold out and moved to Miami as he finally understands he can never leave Tessie again. After all, she still has a lot to teach him.
