Just how far would you go for your loved ones?
It’s Christmas in Paris and Chief of Police Nico Sirsky is back, in love and rearing to go, when he’s handed an odd case. Med school students sometimes play inappropriate pranks, but when a note shows up hidden in the tooth of a severed head, nobody's laughing, and it's Police Chief Nico Sirsky's job to find out if something more sinister is afoot. He and his team of crack homicide detectives follow the clues from an apparent suicide, to an apparent accident, to an all-out murder as an intricate machination starts breaking down. Just how far can despair push a man? How clear is the line between good and evil?
