"Sunrise is the story of Javier De-Barre, a twenty-four year-old Caribbean immigrant, first-generation college graduate. Having earned his college degree to secure a better life, Javier became disillusioned as he found the promises of an education were not what it had been advertised as. The story opened the day after Javier had an outstanding interview for an IT position. Told by his interviewer he must confer with his superior before extending an offer, he confidently awaited the call. Saddled with crushing student loans, and feeling the burden of failed opportunities along with the pressure to start a career, Javier was devastated to discover that his less than qualified former classmate had acquired the position.
Things took a turn for the worse with Alfonso's unexpected murder. The two had been best friends since childhood. When Javier and Alfonso's little sister, Betsy, fell in love, their bond got stronger. Under the clouding circumstances of Alfonso's death, would Javier be the one to blame? Will his love with Betsy survive? Unable to find a way out of these quagmires, Javier left Elizabeth, New Jersey, his adopted hometown, to figure out his life, find himself, and reconcile the rift of his soul.
His journey leads him to the South as he wished to distance himself from the memories. He surprisingly found a similar position to the one he sought in New Jersey. While struggling to recover from Alfonso's death, patch his torn heart, and prove his qualifications at his new job, Javier found himself in the middle of a corporate scheme swindling investors out of money. In the midst of corporate schemes, betrayal, and murder, will Javier risk his dream to expose it all?
