While Chloe McDermott is out delivering packages, an elderly friend, Jimmy, insists on giving her an old chess board as a gift. Not long after, Chloe's life seems to fall into chaos when her beloved dog, Theo, is abducted and the dognapper wants the board as ransom. The only problem is the chess board has gone missing. When she goes to get answers from Jimmy, she's shocked to learn that he has committed suicide.
