Michael Vaughn's (Rich Sommer) minister father (Ed Harris) always told him: Better to be an honest nobody than a crooked somebody. But Michael doesn't see the harm in giving the bereaved the closure they need, as he travels town-to-town professing his psychic abilities to communicate with the dead. One night, Michael is kidnapped. With a knife to his throat, Michael suddenly sees the opportunity of a lifetime to save his floundering career; he must solve the mystery of a high-profile crime in the national spotlight and become a celebrity TV medium. With his associate Chelsea (Joanne Froggatt) by his side, should Michael strive for an anonymous, truthful life, or for notoriety at all costs?
