Billy was a detective who left the police department after being declared non-guilty for the murder of a rapist. 7-years later, Billy became a private detective who lived with his girlfriend Natalie, who was an actress and the sister of the rapist's victim. during the week of election, Billy was summoned by one of the mayor to investigate his wife, who was constantly meeting with another man.
Billy was simply a man who was at a wrong place at the wrong time. while the mayor got hold of the evidence of him killing the rapist, he was pushed around doing dangerous deeds to keep his secret safe. it was obvious that neither him nor those he loved would ever be safe. the film focused on the dark side of politics, where one mayor taking another out for the sake of power. while it was somewhat intense to follow Billy's life and death situation circling around the mayor and his wife, his personal live bear little meaning to the film, lacking the impact that one expected.
