The police investigated the incident, but the person responsible for her death was never found. Ever since then Mike has been living with his uncle Billy who is only ten years older than Mike. Billy likes to party, is unreliable, and he certainly has no idea how to be a responsible adult who is the guardian of a teenage boy. Mike is not doing well at school and when he ditches a history class, the teacher, Riel, gets involved. Riel tells Mike everything he knows about the case, and Mike starts asking questions. He wants to know what happened to his mother.
