After his retirement, Bill Hodges, an ambitious detective, who takes the case of the killing of 16 innocence and the injury of many, by a stolen Mercedes Sedan, but he can not manage to find out the suspect, incidents come to inspire him, as he receives many mysterious messages that provide him with new information that help him in his investigation.
