Four men who have been friends since high school discover they're being blackmailed over the death of another childhood friend, Tom Reynolds (John Brodsky). His death became a lifelong burden and bond between the four men. In the intervening years, each of them has found a measure of success in their lives. Greg Foster (Karl Bury) opened a car dealership. Chris Denardi (Josh Stamberg) became a heart surgeon. John Silvestri (William Mapother) is the dean of a prestigious boys' school. Even Bailey O'Doyle, whose professional baseball career ended too soon, managed to open a restaurant. But try as they might, none of them can escape the shadow of their departed friend. When Bailey turns up dead, it's up to Nichols (Jeff Goldblum) and Stevens (Saffron Burrows) to uncover the truth behind a 22-year-old mystery.
