Five years ago, Sean's family was murdered. Charged but acquitted of the crime, he is now the most infamous person in the small community of Thiston - his whole life defined by this single event. Pam was the officer in charge of the investigation. Tormented by the murders and how a guilty man walked free, she's been soured against the justice system.
Abandoning the police force, Pam has started a small petting zoo, but is unable to move on until justice has been served. Now, for the first time since 'it' happened, Sean's world is blossoming. He meets Casey, a young woman whose faith in his innocence lends new force to his struggle for an ordinary life.
Together they push at the limits of love after persecution. Yet with every step forward, Pam lures us back to the case. She's hoping for the one clue that will have Sean back in court.
