After two weeks of dating, Tony and his girlfriend Joanna Marsh, who works in public relations at Zion Memorial Hospital, have fallen in love much to their own surprise. She is the victim in what looked like a deliberate hit and run, she DOA at the hospital where she worked, with a relative unknown to Tony - an uncle named Walter C. Marsh - having taken away her dead body before he could see her. Tony knows that something is not right as Joanna always mentioned that she had no family in Los Angeles, her records are missing from the hospital, and as a person who largely kept to herself, no one in the hospital knows anything else about her. As Tony goes on a journey of discovery to find out more about Joanna, he finds some things that are a surprise, but also that some people are willing to kill to prevent him from finding out the entire truth behind her and her death.
