But they never came back...When Lisa Grant is sent by her disagreeable boss Scott to help organize the courthouse basement, she finds a cold case file. And she is horrified by what she sees.Because the woman in the picture - who went missing thirty years before - looks just like she does now. Lisa is determined to find out if there's a link between them, and enlists Scott's help to do so. But before they can learn anything more, a series of catastrophes strike close to home. And, as they race to find out the truth about what really happened to the missing family, it becomes clear that there's someone out there who will go to shocking lengths to make sure certain secrets stay completely buried...
