Difficult dehydrated, tied up and tortured, were rescued at the last moment. But the nightmare still wasn’t over for them. Their child is missing. Detective Inspector Jack Caffery was called to investigate the case, but the similarities with the events of his past prevent him to remain objective.

Then begins a nightmare…
