Police Detective John Bekker had it all: a beautiful wife, a five-year old daughter, and a job he loved. Assigned to a special task force investigating organized crime, Bekker got a little too close to mob boss Eddie Crist. As a message to back off, Bekker's home was invaded and his daughter witnessed the brutal murder of her mother. A decade later, Bekker is a drunk, living in a run-down trailer on the beach.
When Bekker's old friend and state prosecutor Carly Simms wakes up next to a murdered young man in a motel room after a night of drinking, she doesn't remember a thing, especially stabbing the young man in the heart. Although all the evidence points to her guilt, Simms hires Bekker to prove her innocence. Bekker soon finds himself ensnared in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
John Tibbets is not just another homeless man living in New York's Bowery. He also suffers from advanced amnesia and has no idea how he arrived at the most famous mission in America. A recluse, he lives a quiet life of desperate isolation. While wandering the Bowery streets one summer night, Tibbets comes upon three men mugging a police officer. Acting on unknown instincts, Tibbets intervenes.
