Penny Tillman (Virginia Madsen - The Haunting, The Rainmaker) travels home to Vermont to spend the holidays with her parents, Martin (James Coburn - Academy-Award Winner - Affliction) and Anne (Barbara Bain). Their warm reunion is cut tragically short when a last-minute errand ends in Penny's untimely death. Still unable to make sense of what has happened, Martin decides to take action.

Starting with the factory where the gun was made, he begins the arduous process of tracking the gun's progress from owner to owner, a journey that takes him across America, from legitimate gun shops to the black market.

As Martin's physical journey leads him closer to the truth, he begins to face the personal demons driving him in his search for answers. He speaks to the previous owners of the gun, finding common themes of loss, fear, passion, betrayal and regret in their stories. When he traces the gun to the world of pawnshops and nightclubs in Las Vegas, Martin must confront its final owner. He must also confront the painful truth about his daughter's death and learn the meaning of redemption in order for the healing to begin.
