Vince Singleton's life has improved since his knowledge of movies helped to catch the serial killer who killed his associates at a Philadelphia college. Even the PTSD symptoms caused by witnessing the allegedly accidental shooting death of his wife, Jewel, have lessened. He now has a girlfriend and is more socially involved, blogging on behalf of women fighting against sexual abuse. While his friend, Lt. Raymond Newman, works to discover whether Vince's spouse was murdered, a new predator emerges who targets independent and sexually liberated women. This killer forces Vince to play a treacherous game of deciphering movie clues by threatening the women in his life. Vince, along with his daughter, Hope, and her film fanatic circle, must stop the murderer before another female joins the cast of victims.
