Twelve years ago two women were murdered, a tiny girl miraculously surviving the attack. The man imprisoned - Deryk Cheever - is now walking free. But no-one touched by this apparently random act of violence can escape the past.
Cheever's illegitimate son, Charlie, is convinced of his father's innocence, determined to prove it. Leah: now a teenager haunted by terrifying dreams, furious Cheever's free, is unable to piece together her memories of what happened.
