The Helper is set at the turn of the Millennium when a self-appointed angel of death is on a killing spree of NYC street children, and First Nation descendant Martha Beauvais and her grandmother, a Lakota shaman, help David Lacey — a gay, Upper West Side, stay-at-home father — deal with a dark and troubled past.

When Lacey’s partner disregards him one too many times, David embarks on a night of debauchery, which goes awry and leads to a fight for survival on a Chelsea street. Alerted by a vision seen by Martha’s grandmother, Martha and her grandmother rescue Lacey and take him to their home on the Mashantucket-Pequot Reservation in Connecticut, where the grandmother leads David to a non-ordinary world of reality that ultimately reveals the identity of The Helper, as well as the man responsible for Lacey’s troubled past.
