Rich Evans is desperate to say goodbye to his past in New York and embrace a future in Waterton with Lou Newman, the small-town car mechanic who is also the love of his life. Just when he is closing the door on the chaos of the big city, tragedy ensues on a large scale. He arrives in Waterton to discover the body of his ex-girlfriend has turned up in a remote area nearby.
Grisly details emerge, and Rich and Lou prepare to try to prove his innocence in a small town where the term 'outsider' can be applied to anyone who wasn't born there.
