Cayce Bridges (Ally Sheedy) is a psychic gifted in a form of remote viewing and empathy/telepathy that allows her to mentally link with murderers enabling police to catch them. That is until she encounters the mysterious and elusive Shadow Man (Pruitt Taylor Vince), who is not only similarly blessed, but is more powerful than she is.
