Bridget’s most important job has always been protecting her younger sister, Dahlia. But as adults, Dahlia pushes her away, determined to live her own life.
Then, Dahlia vanishes.
When a former classmate of Dahlia’s comes forward with a new lead, Bridget decides to take matters into her own hands. She ignores the dismissive detective’s warnings and launches her own amateur investigation.
