His doubts about the accused and himself only deepen when the victim of the beating mysteriously disappears, with no body to be found.As the brilliant yet tormented detective discovers that he's not the only person seeing a reflection of tumultuous emotions in this case, he must confront the demons that threaten to overwhelm him and search out the truth....
