What will happen when the secret Marcus has been holding on to begins to unravel, and someone uses it as leverage?

One morning, Marcus O’Connell is confronted by his deputy, Harold Waters, about an accusation that he’s hidden evidence of a crime. Harold knows something is going on in the O’Connell family. Even his partner, Suzanne, is acting strangely. Harold has made it clear that he doesn’t do secrets, but Marcus isn’t too inclined to share the details of the O’Connells’ secret, even with Suzanne’s urging.

At the same time, he learns that the sentencing for those involved in the recent high school crime has been assigned to an overtly conservative judge who makes no apologies for his bias, letting privileged kids walk while tossing others away all because of who their families are. Marcus soon learns there is much more going on behind the scenes with the judge than he’s comfortable with.

Added into the mix is the fact that the adoption for Eva has suddenly taken a turn for the worse. Her grandfather wants to be a part of her life and is questioning Marcus and Charlotte’s fitness as parents. With everything weighing on Marcus, he needs to make some hard choices about coming clean with his family’s secret and taking a stand against the unfairness that has cropped up in a criminal case that should’ve been open and shut.

In finding a way to keep Eva in their family and close the adoption, Marcus may need to realize that carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders alone isn’t the answer—and that reaching out, asking for help, and trusting someone could be the only way to resolve everything.
