Millennium tells the story of Cassidy Owens and her murdered brother and mother at the hands of their ex-law enforcement father and husband. Based on a true incident that takes place in a county in North Carolina, Cassidy finds herself between a rock and a hard place, powerless to comprehend the events of that holiday week when her father took his gun and shot his ex-wife and his own son who moved to protect his mother and took a bullet instead before the father went off into the woods and shot himself in remorse. This is a powerful story of how a saintly grandmother and other strong figures such as her Aunt Patty and Uncle Joel, along with her college advisor, Dr. Potter, and Dena, the director of a womens shelter, provide the support that helps Cassidy overcome the tragedy that threatens to take control of her life.
