Nineteen years old Walker Devereaux leaves his adopted home in Big River for Toronto. Walker is obsessed to learn about his past starting with why his mom Lennie abandoned him on an isolated road when he was three. He has a clue from someone who apparently knew his mom; a letter that was written to Lennie from her school friend Kim which includes a picture of two girls one of which might be his mother.
In Toronto Walker obtains work driving a cab on a graveyard shift and befriends wheelchair-bound dispatcher Krista Papadopoulos. Her brilliance enables Walker to follow clues that take him initially to the exclusive upper crust Forest Hill neighborhood and eventually to Jamaica. However, someone wants Walker and Krista to stop.
