He lives with his aunt and uncle after his divorced mother's painful death from leukemia. An accident, in which five teenagers were killed after a night out, shocked the small town's community.

Ren stands up to the outmoded ban and, in the process, falls in love with the Reverend's daughter Ariel Moore.
