Kim Brady, third generation NYPD, returns to the job after her father's recent suicide and catches a career-making case-a mass shooting in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. There is one eyewitness, Leanne, but she can't come forward because she's transgender and she fears coming out. Kim resists her lieutenant's demands to force Leanne's cooperation for personal reasons. She's also being undermined by someone inside the department who is tampering with evidence, threatening the other witness, stalking Leanne.

Kim's father died under a cloud and her feelings for him are complicated. And as Kim realizes that someone in the department is behind the shooting, her personal feelings clash with her professional mission. That tension stretches her relationship with her fianc to its breaking point. The mastermind behind the attack presses Kim's soft spots to gaslight her. Unraveling the elaborate criminal conspiracy forces her to apply the lessons from her father's experiences.
