It’s left a mark.

Now, a random rescue has put a baby in his arms. He’s the only one that seems able to keep her happy and quiet. The Shepherd recruits Bernie for the extraction. No one wants a crying baby.

What should be a simple side mission goes sideways.

Now Bernie must not only struggle with his own fears, but with the safety of a trusting baby girl. Can he save the baby? Can he save himself?
