Kent "Mac" McClain, after losing his wife and kids in a car crash, experiences grief of the loss and attempts suicide with a revolver. However, he is interrupted by a phone call inviting him to solve a case involving a murder called the Hightower murder case. He discusses it with Judge Danielson, who encourages him to start living. Mac then talks to Pete Thomason, the supposed murderer of his girlfriend by strangulation. However, Pete does not remember the situation.
Then, seeking guidance, Mac invites two other friends, his neighbor Ray, and a friend Mindy to help him investigate the murder. They both discuss the idea that Pete doesn't remember anything, and try to find evidence that is possibly important to the trial.
Filming took place in Charlotte, North Carolina.
