Detektiv je odločen odkriti resnico, ki se skriva za umorom njegovega sodelavca.Ko detektiv Galban najde svojega sodelavca Cullena umorjenega, posumi, da je bil ta vpleten v preprodajo mamil in policijsko korupcijo. Vse priče, ki jih najde Galban, so že mrtve. Tako Cullenova žena kot njegov nadrejeni skušata detektiva prepričati, naj opusti preiskavo. Njegova edina sled je mlada Južnoameričanka Isabel, toda Galban se boji, da bo njeno življenje ogroženo, če se ji preveč približa. Isabel se sooča s težavno preteklostjo, vendar pa morda prav ta preteklost vodi do resnice.
Detective Galban Keanu Reeves, finds his partner and close friend, Detective Cullen, murdered in an underground subway. On the hunt for the killer/s, Galban begins to suspect his partner may have been heavily involved in drug dealing and police corruption. As Galban investigates, people who knew Cullen, are conveniently found dead. The closer Galban gets to the truth, both Cullen's wife, Janine Mira Sorvino, and his Lieutenant Christopher McDonald, try to persuade him to back off, fearing his findings may discredit Cullen and expose corruption within the Police Department. Galban's only remaining lead is Isabel, a young, devout, Latino girl, who resides with her in-laws. Galban fears her life could be in jeopardy should he get too close to her. However, Isabel has recently experienced something not from this world, something mystical that she believes is truly a miracle. Not unlike Galban, Isabel is dealing with her own demons from the past; a past that just may lead them to the truth; in turn, bringing both some form of assurance.
