The homicide detectives investigate a twenty year closed case when twenty-five year old Sophia Bacic now believes she witnessed the murder of her older sister, Josie Bacic. Two youths, friends Gil Dobeck and Matthew Evans, who were present at the crime scene by the Fraser River, were convicted of the murder, and sentenced to life. The two have always professed their innocence. Dobeck recently committed suicide, Evans believing that he lost hope since the parole board denied him for the third time for not showing remorse. Sophia, now in therapy and feeling her own remorse upon hearing about Dobeck's suicide, believes that her remembrances are of her father dumping "something" in a large bag by the crime scene. Vina's review, which includes a physical review of the exhumed body, shows that Josie was the victim of some sort of abuse and was not murdered at the supposed crime scene. When the now retired investigating officer, Donald Portman, learns that the case is reopened, he does not react too kindly. The detectives believe he may be hiding something about the case. And eventually both the Bacic parents are brought in for questioning, they who also vehemently deny murdering their daughter. The detectives have to figure out who is lying or how the pieces fit together. This case and other issues in his life are making Ben remember an incident from his childhood when he, after running away because of the constant abuse by his stepfather, was taken in by a kindly aboriginal woman named Carol. Ben, with Ryan's help, wants to remember a missing year in his childhood associated with that incident. Written By Huggo  Less
