For over three years kidnap victim Jake Cornish has struggled to put the memories of his ordeal in the Philippines behind him. Not even his wife Beth knows the full truth and he wants to keep it that way. However, on their first family vacation since returning to the US, a chance sighting of one of his kidnappers inflames his need for closure.
When attempts to learn more about his kidnappers' new lives coincide with a brutal attack on their family, Jake becomes entangled in a police investigation which, if he tells the truth, threatens not only to wreck his marriage but also provide the one piece of information the police are missing – a motive for revenge.
