California PI Jackson Douglas intends to sleep half of his thirtieth birthday away. After all, it's just another painful reminder of the tragedy his life has become, and avoidance seems to be the only coping mechanism that works.
But plans change when Jackson is contacted by his neighbor Connie and a valley girl named Shay, both of whom want to hire him. He reluctantly takes their cases, and while both seem harmless enough, he can't shake the feeling that things are not what they appear.
Jackson's ambiguous misgivings finally begin to take shape when Shay disappears. Jackson spends a hectic night chasing across Los Angeles, using every resource available to help Shay while simultaneously seeking to unravel the elusive truth about her identity. The search thrusts him into a decade-old feud between rival LA gangs, repeatedly putting his life in danger and forcing him into decisions that could change his life forever. Only when morning breaks does Jackson realize his cases are intertwined, leading to a showdown with a gang leader while everyone's life hangs in the balance.
