After her friend Allen dies, his mother gives Lucy Monroe some of his belongings, including a videotape that contains evidence of a crime--evidence someone will do anything to destroy.

Perhaps the perpetrator should be less worried about destroying and more concerned about their life of crime in general. Maybe it's not working out.
