Davey can teleport. During times in his youth when he was afraid, he would suddenly wake up in the place where he felt safest: the library. After experimenting a few times, he learns he can teleport somewhere simply by concentrating on a location that he's been to before. A high school student with an abusive father, Davey knows he wants to get out, he just doesn't know where to go, or what to do. A few bus tickets later, Davey is in New York City, but without a driver's license or any other identification, how is he going to get a job or an apartment? Fulfilling the dreams of anyone who's seen a bank-job movie, Davey robs a bank, teleporting in and out. Not meaning to take more than he needs to survive, he accidentally takes just shy of a million dollars. From official release/information:
