A popular, superstar high school athlete, Jimmy Keene, seemed to have it all growing up in the river city of Kankakee, Illinois. But then, he began selling drugs and moved to Chicago, where his business boomed but a danger lurked 150 miles south that would change his life forever.
After popular video blogger Willow (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg, "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer") and her boyfriend Holden are seen kidnapped live on-line by two violent assailants, Detectives Logan (Chris Noth) and Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson) are assigned to the high-profile case. With the help of a tech wizard, the Detectives question whether the kidnapping is staged or real. When a follow-up video blog shows Willow pleading to viewers to download videos which will raise the ransom money, Detective Wheeler takes a trip into cyberspace to face-off with the kidnappers.
