The film follows the investigation into the 1973 rape and murder of a young Manhattan school teacher. The film is a made-for-television sequel to the 1977 theatrical film Looking for Mr. Goodbar, which itself was based on Judith Rossner's acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name, published in 1975. However, Trackdown opens with a disclaimer, disassociating itself from Rossner's novel.[2]
