As a child, Yasmine (Bree Williamson) witnesses her mother's death after an argument with her father. Years later as a District Attorney, she finds herself dealing with a case that is eerily similar to the death of her own mother. This leads to her suffering painful flashbacks, which leads to her losing the case. After she is forced to take a leave from work, she returns to her hometown with her daughter. She also intends to rebuild the case with time on her hands. However, her plans are ruined when the man she set free shows up for revenge.
