A clear, winter morning on a pleasant suburban street. Cate and Julie (both blonde and in their 30s) are best friends and neighbors who share a cup of coffee as Julie readies her 9 year-old son, Gavin, for pee-wee hockey practice. After the boy leaves a mysterious van backs into Julie's open attached garage. The women realize someone is trying to break in. Cate rushes to call 9-1-1 as Julie tries to lock the door. But the unseen intruder bursts into the house and... the two women vanish.

Our agents dig into the lives of the two friends with many more questions than answers. Was this a planned or random abduction? Was it the work of a kidnapper or a sexual predator? Was the intended victim Julie, Cate, or both of them? When Julie is found shot and left for dead, it appears Cate was the target. The agents probe deeper into Linda's life and unearth a shameful secret. Is her sordid past linked to why she was kidnapped? Or, did Cate's philandering husband, Richard hire someone to kill his wife? Our story takes a turn when the agents identify the abductor as a career criminal in pursuit of stolen money. Further investigation reveals that the powerful friendship between Cate and Julie has led to a case of mistaken identity, putting Cate in the hands of a ruthless killer. Our team rushes to find her before time runs out...
