Laura Richards is a young sculptor who creates prosthetics for war veterans and others in need of limbs. After perfecting a new arm, she brings it to the main recovery floor of a New York Veteran's Hospital. When she delivers the prosthetic to an emotionally distraught Iraq war vet, he explodes with anger and must be restrained. She backs away, shaken, and promptly disappears.
When the agents arrive, they discover a VA populated by soldiers grappling with the physical and emotional traumas of war. Laura was clearly in over her head, working community service that stemmed from a theft charge. The deal was brokered by her Vietnam vet father, Quinn, who hoped to teach her a lesson in honor and sacrifice.
The investigation takes a disturbing turn when the agents learn of Laura's connection to a radical anti-war group in the final stages of carrying out an anti-military terrorist attack. But Laura was having a secret relationship with a war amputee, Brandon, and had second thoughts about carrying out the attack. As the agents race to unravel the mystery it becomes clear that the answers to Laura's disappearance are associated with her father. Before her disappearance, Laura was involved in a shooting, and though it was self-defense, she believed she would end up in jail. Her father, Quinn, smuggled her over the border to Canada, in the hopes of making things right between them.
