Abel Grey (Edward Burns) is a police detective investigating the death of Gus Pierce (Thomas Gibson), a bullied college student found frozen in a nearby river.  School officials and Abel's superiors deem the death a suicide -- and for publicity's sake prefer tokeep it that way. 


Grey suspects foul play however, and is haunted by visions of his own brother's death years ago.  Gus' best friend, Carlin (Rachelle Lefevre) and the deceased's photography teacher, Betsy (Jennifer Ehle) agree.  Regardless of his boss' orders, Abel insists upon digging deeper into the case, and unraveling the true cause of the boy's death.
