When a bulldozer in the Everglades unearths the skull of an infamous kidnapper, the Cold Case Squad is brought in to investigate. Miami crime reporter Britt Montero was the last person to see him alive, and the detectives have questions only she can answer. Meanwhile, on a remote island where she has sought solace, Britt finds a camera on an isolated beach. The film inside yields photos of a happy young couple on their honeymoon. Soon after, Britt is shocked to learn the newlyweds were lost at sea. When only the groom is rescued, a connection between the reporter and the new widower, who has a habit of marrying women who then die on their honeymoons, astonishes her. Britt finds herself desperate and in danger, and only one person can help: Cold Case Squad Lt. K.C. Riley, the childhood sweetheart of Britt's old flame, Kendall McDonald. The two women must confront their differences in order to survive and to protect the life of someone they both care about deeply.
