Frank Morrison, a boat builder concerned about his son Danny, a troubled 12-year-old who has shown a tendency to lie since his parents broke up. When his ex-wife Susan announces that she's getting remarried to Rick Barnes, a recent arrival in town and a popular, wealthy philanthropist, Frank struggles with jealousy but feels that Rick might be a stabilizing influence for his son.

When Danny begins relating unsettling stories about Rick, Frank at first chalks it up to youthful rebellion, but when Danny stridently claims to have witnessed his new stepfather committing murder, Frank's instincts tell him the story is true. As he investigates the new man in his family's life, Frank uncovers alarming facts about Rick, who's not the man he appears to be.

The film was released in November, 2001.
