When the news broke out about the killing of a congressional aid under very suspicious context, a Washington journalist decides to take on the case. He soon discovers a thread relating this crime to another that saw a thief gunned down in an ally. Cal suspects a wide conspiracy and is resolute at getting to the bottom of this story. His turbulent past with the congressman and old college friend might complicate things a bit more.

Helped by an ambitious young writer and his determination, Cal is faced with stern opposition, and is now at the center of a swirling affair involving assassins, informants and big cover up. Very tough decision must be taken even if they conflict with his moral and ethical standings.
