Kate Ross is small-town attorney seeking election to a local judicial position, who has just discovered that her son Trey has been arrested for armed robbery and attempted murder in a neighboring college town. Although she is highly respected, Kate has an ugly secret that, until now, she has successfully hidden for decades. Her sons legal troubles and the sudden exposure of her dark past now threaten to cost her the election and destroy her relationships. Thanks to long-time friend Wade, she soon discovers that she is the target of Andy, an angry man bent on revenge for wrongs Kate committed long ago, and that he has been insinuating himself into their lives for years as part of a twisted plot to destroy Kate. Kate is forced to face her past, along with the consequences it brings. In the mean time Wade desperately seeks evidence to clear Treys name, and in the process, discovers that most of the people who have wronged Andy have wound up dead.
