When a farmer’s dog digs up two dead bodies in small town Missouri, all hell breaks loose in this noir thriller. Julie, a recently divorced wreck, searches for traction in her life after marriage. Her ex-husband, Thad, has been implicated by the Sheriff in the murder investigation. But Thad is just a pawn who’s in the way of weight loss guru Gayle Benson’s plan to run the illegal drug trade through her diet pills.
When Thad disappears, The Sheriff, who is in love with Julie himself, won’t search for him and secretly blocks the investigation. Julie, taking matters into her own hands, hires a Private Investigator to find Thad and re-gain his love.
