Ted Bronson is a Vietnam combat veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms. He and his wife Michelle are private investigators specializing in financial investigations. They have been looking into allegations that there is corruption in the handling of public employee pension funds in California. Ted isn’t sure the charges have any merit, but decides to run the scenario by a friend who is a financial whiz. When he arrives at the man’s office he finds the police on the scene and his friend dead, an apparent suicide. Ted is questioned and provides vague answers, not wanting to expose the real reason for the meeting. Everything changes a few hours later, however, when his friend’s death is reclassified as a murder. The Bronsons are drawn ever deeper into the investigation. It is a journey from which there is no return, and one that may very well destroy them both.
