Seven cryptic photographs. A decades-old case. Can one woman find a killer?
Before his death, Terry Darnell was a famous detective. His daughter Stella, a cleaner, has inherited his methodical mind. She has also inherited a strange case file: seven photographs of empty streets. Why did her father keep them for so many years?
One photo dates from 1966, to a day when a young girl witnessed something that would haunt her forever.
As Stella scrubs away at the truth, the events of that day begin to haunt her too...
