Captain Swaggert is investigating the discovery of seven hands, found over several years, each one precisely severed and with a number tattooed on the palm. At this point, he has no leads. The highly qualified Special Investigator, Audrey Macleah, is assigned to join the team and give support to the investigation. When the police department receives a call from a medical doctor in an institution, Audrey meets with the doctor and the doctor introduces an autistic boy Jordan Thomas. There she sees seven hands that the boy had drawn on the wall. Audrey dedicates her attention to Jordan and discovers that he is connected to the serial-killer.
