When remains of a human skeleton are found in a hidden well, Detective Sargent Lucy Fuller is called to the crime scene on the outskirts of the small town of Kingsford. With her boss held up on a court case, Lucy has a chance to prove herself and begins the investigation. Forensics reveal the remains are a local boy, Daniel Dunderdale, who went missing thirty years ago. Old case notes indicate a child murderer was active in neighboring counties, but Lucy isn’t convinced, and the evidence doesn’t add up.
Johanna Hale has just been dumped by her latest long-suffering girlfriend, and she returns to Kingsford to lick her wounds and build some bridges. When news of Daniel’s discovery reaches her, she’s determined to figure out what happened all those years ago and finally put her childhood friend to rest.
A friendship soon develops between Lucy and Johanna, but when the evidence leads to a shocking discovery for Johanna, she is left reeling from the truth that has been hidden for so long.
