Katie (Katie Holmes) is under pressure. She faces exams, completion of her thesis, and a competitive interview process, all of which is compounded when a police detective, Wade Handler (Benjamin Bratt), begins investigating the two year-old disappearance of her boyfriend, Embry (Charlie Hunnam), a young man whose memory haunts and obsesses her. As the investigation continues, Katie is forced to choose between past passions and new possibilities, even as Handler is discovering surprising new facts about Embry's final days and his possible connection to another disappearance from campus.
