Sue Conroy is out of control. Recently released from prison after serving ten torturous years, Sue is determined to seek out every person who has contributed to the living hell she has had to endure. Sue kidnaps a twelve-year-old deaf boy and heads straight to a Chicago inner-city women's shelter, run by Dana Dupinsky. Dana safeguards many secrets in the lives of those around her but she would never knowingly harbour a kidnapper. But Dana only realises the danger when those around her start dying and she is immediately thrust into the middle of Sue's evil game.
