A series of murders in Hot Springs, Arkansas, forces two homicide detectives, a gay, preppie upper-class male and a tough street-savvy lesbian, to solve the murders and come to terms with their own intense bigotry. Their investigations lead them to Simon Lee Teel, a young man who has been committed to the local psych unit due to a violent, reoccurring nightmare that foretells of his impending murder. As his psychologist tries to unlock the truth behind his nightmare, a picture of a lost soul emerges, one that is teetering between good and evil. Can the detectives join forces to solve the murders and stop the killer? Will Simon's nightmare come true? Will good prevail in the end, or has evil shown itself to be superior?
