Grady Lee Jr. struggles to bring his 1000 acre family farm back to life. He subsidizes his income by doing maintenance work on various machines through his adopted father’s small engine shop. He manages to grow enough produce to feed himself and the very few people that are apart of his reclusive lifestyle. Although Grady Jr. is a hermit without any social skills, much like a savant, he is very well known in the small town of Clay, AL for bringing any type of machine, from chainsaws to tractors, back from the dead.
Grady has never had ambitions to be married or have children. He lost his mom when he was 5 years old but remembers his last moment with his mother very well. By the time he was 13 his father had been re-married for three years and Grady Jr. along with his step-sister, lost their parents while his step-mom and his father were killed in a mysterious car crash. He was then separated from his stepsister, Mary Ann, the only family he had left. While social services returned Mary Ann to Washington D.C. to live with her grandmother, Grady was taken in by his father’s best friend, Randy. Randy raised him as his own and helped keep the family farm sustained until Grady could take over. One day, Grady, enters his fathers office, a place he rarely went, to find some peace or inspiration, as to what his father might do in his situation. He discovers a hidden compartment behind the bookshelf and finds something that would set him on a path of obsession. It is his late father’s journal. The journal was composed in the 60′s while he was in the military. Grady Jr. had no idea his father was ever in the military as there was no record of him ever serving time as a soldier during Vietnam. In the journal, Grady discovers that his father had drawn up plans to develop what potentially could be revolutionary machine that was capable of changing the world. The journal was compilation of Nikola Tesla’s work. It dealt with electromagnetism, free energy from the ions in the atmosphere as well as extracting water from the air giving U.S citizens the ability to be independent from the utility grid. In the journal was diagram that Grady Sr. had given the code name was “Jack.” Jack was designed specifically for agricultural purposes, so Grady thinks. It contains information that was deemed classified by the United States Air Force. Grady begins studying the journal and it is clear that the information was not only revolutionary for the agricultural industry but could very well be away to supply energy for anything that currently was using natures resources for energy such as oil, gas, and fossil fuels. Grady is beside himself with this discovery. He knows that ‘Jack’ is the secret to growing plants in half the time, therefore doubling his agricultural production. This could not only be the answer to saving his farm, as well as, helping the dying town that he called home. He also knew this could potentially change the world. With the help of his friend, Boudreaux, they begin to work on the device.
Boudreaux is of Native American decent. He can sense a change is coming for Grady and attempts to warn him. One evening while Grady was in his workshop, the phone rings and it’s an attorney. His sister has passed away and Grady is a beneficiary in her last will and testament. He discovers he is suddenly the guardian to a six-year-old boy named Kai. Grady would later discover Kai’s unique gifts. Out of an act of duty, not love, he accepts the responsibility. Everyone that meets Kai is drawn to him…all except for Grady. To him the kid is a distraction from his regular routine and keeps him from his obsession, completing Jack. Being from the city, Kai is a stranger to nature. For some unknown reason his mom sent him to a complete stranger’s home in the middle of nowhere. What Kai doesn’t know is Mary Ann has planned this for few years and believes this will be the perfect environment for her son’s ability to mature. – Written by Tom Bhramayana
